The truth is, we long for love. We seek understanding of death and beauty. We want to be vulnerable and protected. We want to define our own realities and find freedom through perception. Four jewellers: Erinn M. Cox, Kristine Ervik, Olaf T. Hodne, and Hanna-Maria Vanaküla depict the unknown, the unspeakable, and the unmanageable through the inherent understanding of the circle. As both starting points or conclusions, the round form finds its way to the chest, the neck, the eyes in the personal languages of structured metal chains or meticulously carved stone and glass to find consolation of these ever-present, ever-personal, universal desires.
