…. when it’s a sculpture.

“My jewellery is sculpture for the body,
my sculptures are jewellery for the landscape.”Marijke de Goey.

For me, art can bridge the gap between the mundane and the profound; the taken-for-granted “real” world and the dreams and imaginings of our souls.

    • I love the idea of a climbing frame over water, though I’m guessing a lot of parents of smallish kids wouldn’t. And I love her quote too; I’ve been thinking about it a lot in terms of my jewellery and wondering if I need to revisit what I own/wear with a different mindset.
