My work is a statement about contemporary jewelry and its value:
not about amassing the precious material but the emotional value.
Not a handful of jewelry but one piece of jewelry.
While “Diamonds last forever” human nature is transitory.
Can one collect and prolong the happy moments or save the good memories?
This is a collection about playing life with lucidity and awareness so to enjoy the moment fully,
about consuming contemporary jewelry:
ephemeral and fragile pieces as life itself.
Their preciousness is given by this awareness on their fragility and the relation that the user chooses to invest in one piece,
as a candid extension of his.
These wearable objects made of graphite or colored chalk are moments of pure joy and spontaneity but also of suspense.
I associate this idea of full joy with childhood: as colored chalk is an instant,
candid joy for any child in the world, and most of all, an accessible joy!
