A jewellery is probably the most emotional product one can possess - Either it is inherited through generations, which explains already the emotional connection to the jewellery-piece or the story of it. Sometimes, the story to the jewellery is even more important, then the value or the appearance of the heirloom itself. A jewellery can also be given to you as a gift by someone you love, or we can give it to ourselves, out of an emotional impulse or an inner celebration - starting to create a very own story from scratch, which can be told for generations to come. We can also create a story around the product and make the clients want to be part of it, of the feeling or the fantasy. All have one thing in common - the need to be, or feel special.
The circle protects and conceals, but different from the square as it is swinging, dynamic and free of rough edges. It symbolizes a unique wholeness and unity. It suggests a gesture of hugging and symbolizes the cycle of life, time, eternity and infinity. It has the power to exclude evil and is symbolism of the feminine, the mother-figure, the fullness and completeness. The same is true for the 3 dimensional shape of the circle, the sphere. All other geometric and stereometric regular figures can be formed from it. The square displays the here and now of reality, whereas the circle corresponds to eternity and the eternal repetition of all things.
Life Lessons - I picture myself at the wonderful lake, where I grew up and of how my grandfather patiently teached me the delicate art, of skipping a perfectly shaped stone, over a sometimes not so calm water surface. He told me, that it needs dedication, endurance and often - adaption. It starts with the careful selection of the stone, and then, patience - until you reach your very own perfection according to the natures conditions. As more bounces your chosen stone makes over the water surface, as more beautiful will become the water-circle-art you paint with it.
