New Places – abstraction of a landscape

Starting up with a variety of colorful images from a landscape. Sketching, cutting papers, building models … setting up a kind of map in my studio. Choosing materials … oxidized silver, gold, enamel, reconstructed stones. Thinking about purpose, meanings and limitations. Giving each part the right shape, size and place. Keeping the playful mood.
Necklaces seemed to be the perfect object for my theme, no up, no down, playing around the neck, constantly finding new directions. Wearing the object, become inhabitant of the new place.
