Intro
For the opening of the Slovenian Jewellery Week in Izola, students of the Izola Secondary School, under the guidance of Prof. Mojca Žnidaršič and designer Sandra Kocjančič, will bake 365 biscuits, which they will then link together to form a large delicious necklace. This unique necklace will symbolize the days of the year that we will enjoy together.

The idea for this unique creation dates back to 2022, when designer Sandra Kocjančič invited visual arts and design students to each create their own circle using any technique, representing a day, a period of time, or a cycle in their lives. This is how the giant urban necklace was created. The interconnected circles of different artists formed a giant necklace that represented our connectedness and strength in coming together as a community, the power of joy, one of Europe's fundamental values.

Mentors: Prof. Mojca Žnidaršič and designer Sandra Kocjančič
