“A poem consists of words and the silence in between”
(a free interpretation of a Dutch poem - Martinus Nijhoff)
This poem, written on a wall of the local library near my home, touches the core of my inspiration to make jewelry. I only make half-way-there-products, lost without the wearer. I want to capture the silence in between the words in the jewelry I design, but also invite the wearer to do so with their own silence/memories.
My jewelry should be a marriage between art and a utensil. The icing on the cake is the added sentimental value of the piece.
