In this project, I am aiming to create pieces that would express solitude and moments of happiness.
I used, as a starting point, idea of a silent moment. What is a moment? For me it is incarnated in a stone, landscapes and blur. I use a polymer material and cover it with crushed marble. Silence is light and transparent like the material I use. The unique combination of these two components creates the illusion of a solid stone.
I question traditional approaches and instead of valuable jewels I celebrate the idea behind the material.  For the rear of the brooches and other supporting details of the jewellery I use valuable metals like gold, gold plated silver and titanium.
My idea is to show beauty of a moment in a landscape or stone-like abstract figures crafted in to brooches.
To make this project I crafted more than 200 hundred pieces. I selected 21 and made them into jewelry.

     Philosophy behind the color.

At the start of my project I made a mind map and worked with various      inspirational images. I made created a personal definition of silence and realized that silence is in essence a muting of some perceptions in order to focus on others. To test this I took some photos and muted the black ink when printing them. I think the achieved effect in colours is an example of a visualization of silence.
