This is the second piece inspired by medieval mystic Rumi's timeless words for the Journey collection. In the vitreous enamel focal, I tried to evoke the idea of a 'person inside a person inside a person', a shedding of selves till one melds with the stars. For the setting, I went for the look of a half-cross from ancient Byzantium. The piece encompasses in itself the mood I want to achieve with Journey, the waters at the tributary of new and old symbolism, part-alchemy, part-2020.
The focal piece is made in the painstaking technique of cloisonné, where wires are delicately bent to my original designs then filled with thin layers or powdered glass that is kiln-fired. The resulting human-made gemstone glints and catches the light with great depth and brilliance, really glittering. (For more about cloisonné, check out this link where I walk you through the process in an IGTV).
This piece is an entirely unique piece of art jewelry and a collector's item, and comes signed and dated at the back.

All handmade jewelry is delicate. Though by no means as fragile as some stones, vitreous enamels can break or chip if mishandled. No drops, shocks, tugs or chemicals - and it will last to be buried with you inside your pyramid.
