Marble, resin



My collection of protective hand jewelry is made of marble and resin. Throughout history, jewelry has been used for protection, physical as well as spiritual, in the form of lucky charms or any kind of symbols and “armours”.
I like to connect my work with the history of jewelry and it is important for me to create pieces that make people feel protected. I have used white marble in these pieces because it is a hard material, which emits a special luster. In many cultures white colour symbolises light and peace.
