Worms: Into the unknown

If the material character dominates in the jewelry, it is caught in the moment of fascination, even if it exposes him to extreme conditions, such as the processing by a human. By focusing on the essentials and not to external conditions, we reach the blurred lines between the natural and artificial. These relationships are the jewel in the compositions of freedom.
She poured herself a cup of coffee and sat down again to her laptop.
The "Flatworms" have brought up an idea that might work well. She has never seen something like that, this fine, flaky body look like stripped layers of paint that were so colorful that one could hardly believe it ....... They have taken it to her heart.
Far below the horizon, in the darkness of the ocean it lives unobserved by humans. Where the light goes out and ceases to exist, romp creatures of unknown nature. They lure us in mysterious ways, open up their habitat and run off with us into their closed world.
In their habitat „live“ many algae.
Alginate is a material which is derived from algae. Mixed with water, it serves as a jelly-like mass for body forming. As a purely biological material it is safe and environmentally friendly. Process after the water evaporates and the shape shrinks and dries out. It is very easy. This ease has intrigued me. This was the moment where I have processed it and made jewelry of it. I've often changed, further carved, colored, or coated the imprint. These pieces include cement, pigments or sand. What are these objects? They are mild forms, imprints of shells, skeletons of marine organisms, parts of melted sand grains together, or the unknown nature which we cannot see. This jewellery shows how I see the real, or even the unreal. There are not real found shells, or coral skeletons, there are only three-dimensional pictures of it. And what is than what could be known only seems more real than visible things. The game played by real and not real, takes place in jewelry and the wearer's body.
