REBELLIOUS CHAINS

2017

This work was inspired by the personal change of my life, becoming a jewellery designer after several years of working in another field. The Rebellious Chains are about the newly gained freedom, unused potential and ambition surfacing. I transformed ordinary chains, still respecting their original values but enabling them to achieve jewellery status on their own, not just in a supporting, subordinated role. They symbolise the process of becoming self-aware and focus on how they start to form their own patterns instead of the repetitive baseline function they used to have or what was expected of them. The first chain just starts to realize that it can actually move in an unexpected way, while the second produces new chain links out of its own ones. The third piece is giving birth to larger, more complex chain links through the joining of the original links.
