Jewellery is said that it's a part of you. That it's telling people something about you. But how can a piece of jewellery talk about identity? And how do we do it? With all these questions i started a philosophical search. I wanted to understand why, how and maybe even the start. But the more I read the more questions I got. Questions I dind't had a reply for. To aks the questions in a different way and to give myself a different perspective, I started working. With a question in my mind I made a piece. Every piece is made with another question in mind.
