This newest body of work consists of brooches, pendants, rings and earrings. I use the circle as a basic com-ponent and put together three-dimensional forms with six different circle sizes. These forms are built symmetrically, starting from a center and adding and arranging the components in different angles to form clusters and layers. The resulting shape is a rigid meshwork, where the cube can be recognized as the main organizing form. Building the forms was like a game for exploring variations. I used the same number of components to put together forms with different characteristics: pattern, density and size. The pieces are first built up in wax and then cast in one piece in silver or gold.
