Helena Scarlata
My jewellery objects make way for new entities that belong to another world and are a direct representation of my love of nature. The transformation of something ordinary into something unforeseen invites the viewer to change their perspective and to develop a gentle, sensitive perception of the need to repurpose everyday and natural materials. By composing new forms out of found resources
I am able to embellish an organic object in such a way that it is an unexpected juxtaposition of contradictory materials. A camou age if you like of the natural world into something unnatural.
