One of a kind piece
Crushed is a powerful emotion, one that you feel when something beautiful is ending.
Crushed is how you feel when you lose someone dear.
But every ending is a new beginning, it's up to you how you start over,
or whether if you take the good or the bad of every experience.
Working whit thin layers of silver, resulted by crushing melted silver I create organic structures,
that are very light and give the illusion of fragility
used as a methaphor to expres the fragility of life, relationships, feelings.
One of the main focus in my work is the dialog formed between the piece and the human body,
being mostly intrigued by the interaction between the jewelry and the wearer.
It is not the inherent value of the jewelry that I emphasize, rather its capacity of innovation and experiment.
