(Not) a drop in the ocean

The collection is part of the Rough stones for rough times project. After the tough times we experienced during the epidemic, it seems that the world is imposing more and more complex living conditions and challenges on us, which are sometimes very difficult to define. It is felt that the past logics of thinking are falling and the individual feels at times that he has no control over the course of events and that all the efforts for a better future are just a drop in the ocean. Yet without all the drops, there would be no ocean - every drop counts, we are all part of the whole. And we are all a whole.

Remember Lavanda

The collection is about a young woman who moves far away from home because of love, leaving behind a landscape filled with lavender scent. Like the amethyst, lavender-shaped jewelry is trapped in the form of an amulet that will protect their love and at the same time it will preserve her memories of home.
