MAKING THE MOST OF IT is an interactive project where 25 participants gave me materials/objects/stories that represented their time in the first Corona lockdown, which I in turn used to make 7 necklaces.
Nominated for the Biennale Prize, 2021.
The prize committee’s statement:
"Jewellery as a carrier of personal stories forms a strong narrative, whose basic fabric is human not material. The pieces become images of a time of crisis, when new creativity blooms and old dogmas are challenged. The artist’s interpretation of the personal stories is both refreshing and humorous but also has a serious note, and the personal artefacts have been treated with great care, whether they are gold or a roller-skate wheel."
