Veronika Fabian. Necklace: Handle With Care, 2018. Swarovski crystals, oxidized brass, steel.. 28 x 1 x 67 cm. My starting point was the recycling and sustainability symbol on the everyday packaging. I reinterpreted the usual ‘handle with care’ symbol where the earth is held by a pair of hands, and for my necklace, the wearer replaces the earth. I thought that in the future humanity might need to be saved sooner than the earth does. The necklace’s loose structure makes readability more challenging and refers to the difficulties we face regarding our sustainable future.. Veronika Fabian

Intro
The theme of this year collaboration project was: The Power of Transformation. A circular economy is an alternative to a traditional linear economy (make, use, dispose) in which we keep resources in use for as long as possible, extract the maximum value from them whilst in use, then recover and regenerate products and materials at the end of each service life.
