Carolina Apolonia – Brooch Unique piece -Silver, wood, paint, steel
« My work reflects my intimate world. I often construct abstract versions of rooms, buildings, and cities that mirror my dreams and fears. Some of them relate to memories I have, people in my past or people around me. Yet others deal with my needs for protection, my fear of being locked in or shut out, and my fascination with visible and invisible boundaries.
My work is about finding refuge and freedom.
I am inspired by the everyday rhythms in life; how we move, interact, build, love and heal.
And I’m fascinated by shelters, industrial construction work, and the rules of aerodynamics.
My most recent works show a slight change in shape and form. I wanted to create pieces that represent movement, or rather, the ability to fly.
The collection as a whole shows my view on the ever-changing dynamics between the needs of the individual and the safety, strength and demands of the collective. » Carolina Apolonia

Side expo by Juan Harnie (BE) and Ana Margarida Carvalho (PT)
Ana Margarida Carvalho and Juan Harnie got paired in The Contemporary Jewelry Exchange 2016. Selected jewellers from around the world participated in this project and were paired to find a common interest or theme and make a piece for one another.
Both Ana and Juan look for beauty in things that are not necessarily beautiful to others. Combining plastics and metal is one of their common interests and neither of them shies away from using bright colours.
The pieces presented in this exhibition are similar to the two pieces they originally made for The Exchange. And even though both of them have their own interpretation of beauty and where to find it, their pieces accompany each other really well.
