Dust to Dust

The jewellery collection was inspired by the decorative quality, symbolism and broad diversity of ethnic ornamentation. The artistic reinterpretation of organic forms partially follows the illustrations of the German naturalist Ernst Hæckel.

The powdery surface endorses the ephemeral character of the pieces, and by leaving marks on the skin embodies its transitoriness. We explore contrasts by using modules and motifs like vertebrae bone structures and fluid volumes enhancing the world of artifice and creating almost unnoticeable shifts in atmosphere.
