at workshop - kaori juzu
"Jewellery" is a word that can give anyone a concrete image in a moment, though it is associated with so many different sorts of work.
The word itself is so common that no one seems to pay attention anymore.
And there could be a gap between my work and what people usually recognize as jewellery...
One day I found one precious name in danish which better describes,
what I experience in the process of making
"klenodie"
treasure, gem, jewel ...just a small thing,
but it always makes me feel warm.
