“PERSONA” combines feminine jewelry portraits reminiscent of a familiar bygone era, which inevitably stands on the side of art. They carry the symbols of refinement, confidence, faith in the future, and a love for freedom.
If they are from the past, they most likely blend towards a brighter future. If they are from the future, they yearn for some unbreakable spirit that remains somewhere in the past.
In this apparent contradiction, among the possible answers about their origin, there is something human.
They aim to open up the question to the viewer: Have the aspirations for knowledge, beauty, and independence turned into relics of the past, how far back must we still go?
