Immersing myself in childhood as an ephemeral stage of being, I build a new, more mature relationship with it. By reconstructing past moments, I view them through the eyes of an adult, framed by memory and nostalgia, in an attempt to rejuvenate the gradually fading world of childhood. I identify universal, recognizable objects that activate the subconscious and encourage a dialogue between the viewer and their own childhood. My jewellery collection is an interpretation of a nostalgic childhood, with childhood – favorite candies embodying symbols that become a source of inspiration. In exploring the textures and properties of glass material, I have created objects that emotionally resonate, remind us of the past, and invite the viewer to dive back into their childhood experiences. The creative process, transforming candy shapes into wearable art, reveals my connection with childhood and my perspective on the temporality of this stage. A warning to the viewer – observe the collection very carefully – these pieces are meant for your eyes, not your stomach!
