Various silver chains, enamel, stainless steel




My latest collection is inspired by found images depicting flora and fauna in wooded areas, which I find mysterious and intriguing. Like in my previous work, I chose images for their visual synthesis or specific geometrical aesthetic elements and I gave them a three dimensional “chained interpretation”, transforming them into wearable pieces of jewelry. Each enamel colour is fused and fired on the chain separately and the final piece is constructed gradually from the previous enameled chain. I emphasise on the building-up and layering of the chains, because this allows the piece to evolve, with the various types of chain and colours mixing and intertwining, poetically responding to the images as if they were “still lives”, translating them into a three-dimentional impressionistic relief.
