ARTIST STATEMENT

The 'Coleoptera' collection is a contemporary take on the sacred symbol of scarab. Hand-painted beetles rest on shield-like shapes evoking the amulet and protection properties of the symbol. Colorful and bold, they are meant to encourage conversation and share passion for the art of jewellery and its importance in history and culture.
