Helena Lehtinen: Cameo
Cameo is a traditional piece of jewellery which has its origins in seals. During history it has been in and out of fashion in courts in Europe. Nowdays it is usually a red-white silhuet of a lady, most often worn by eldery ladies.
Reflecting to what this classical piece of jewellery has been in the past, students will search cameo´s meaning today. What it has been, what it could be? Is there any significancy left, what it could present in today´s society / to today´s people? What is your cameo? With new materials and way of working students will create new traditions in cameos. Working with stone is possible in the workshop.
Lead by jewellery artist Helena Lehtinen, assistant Tarja Tuupanen
