I have been looking for the materials to use for this series for a long time. Their adventurous fates have been built into the jewellery. The ebony survived a big fire in a wood-yard in Helsinki, the oak was part of an old ship resting at the bottom of the sea for five hundred years. The centrepiece of the ring with the mammoth-bone was buried deep beneath the surface of the Earth for twelve thousands years, as testified by the engraving
To me, these objects are condensed time. The most important jewel of the series, the "Twelve Millennia" marble ring, was purchased by the Museum of Applied Arts for its contemporary collection. The series was selected for the final exhibition of the competition for the Hungarian Design Award 2005.
All jewellery is wax-cast in 935%° fine silver.
