. “The Cabinet of Love for a bit of Fluff”
. In the research project 'The Cabinet of Love for a bit of Fluff' Kristy Bujanic investigates the possibilities to communicate childhood memories trough jewellery and objects. The feelings attached to these memories are personal but still very recognizable. She focuses on balancing the duality between love and disgust by using materials that evoke recognition and enhance these universal feelings. Her work can be situated within different rooms in the mental image of a house. These rooms now only exist in her memories. She chooses spaces that made a big impression on her. For this project she choose the bathroom, the location where our loved ones are allowed to be their most intimate self. Here you can experience the raw reflection of a person’s real physical being and simultaneously love them for it.. Kristy Bujanic

Jasmijn Coenen. Brooch: Untitled, 2017. Moss Agate, silver, plastics, various precious stones, textile. 11 x 5 x 2 cm. Photo by: Jasmijn Coenen. From series: Iridescent Elysium. 
. 'Iridescent Elysium' is a jewellery collection that inspires substantively and formally by the Romanticism of the 18th century, with a contemporary edge. Intuitively, shapes and materials are combined to create spiritual talismans. They represent a mystical gateway leading to my ideal world, my utopia, my Elysium. A world where unreality is real and where fantasy and the fulfilment of desires takes a central place. But beware, behind the colourful iridescent surfaces there is also a dark shadow. 'Iridescent Elysium' is the world where I want to go. Why don’t you escape with me?. Jasmijn Coenen

. “Saint Quatorze parody”
. Since the industrial revolution, the value of craftsmanship has gradually been replaced by the symbolic value of a brand. This meant that ‘fake’ luxury took the place of preciousness, and people began to consume cheap products en masse. The result is a decadent society that consumes imitations and cliché images as ‘proof’ of financial status. 'Saint Quatorze Parody' questions the value of making. It uses the characteristics of cheap production as a starting point for designs such as playing cards, an organiser, a table, a cabinet and cups, all with a high gadget feeling. The designs are brought together in an installation that evokes a fictitious brand. . Jonas Neo Fabry
