. My work is my biography. In my creation, my memories, my origins, my roots, traditions, places that are emotionally connected to me, have a big impact on me, everything that happens around me. Traditions inspire. I was born as one of the twins. This fact has deeply influenced and shaped my life. I am interested in how this deep bond between two identical people, siamese and identical twins, effects and shapes their physical and emotional condition. What does it mean in their search and longing for a soul-mate where two bodies or two souls grew together. Does One body have two souls or two bodies have one soul? The work presented is reminiscent of human organs that exist and function as a dependant pair. They appear symmetrical but are in fact different. My jewellery is a symbiosis between body and emotion-material and texture, the physical and the meta-physical that aims to create an ever-flowing exchange and tension between one and the other. I understand my jewellery as the symbolic embodiment of an inner condition.​. Ildikó Dánfalvi

. Nature has rules. But nature is also chaos. It has multiple possibilities. Amidst the chaos, there is harmony. The freedom of expression lies in nature. We are controlling our outer expressions. We make rules for ourselves because we want to know how far we are willing to go. We go beyond the limits and break the rules because we want to know ourselves. Animals Instinct necklace is made off traditional jewelry materials like metal or mother of pearl, but also an animal skull. The construction is inspired by the natural form of a medusa and Lillies. When you change your point of view,  you will see either chaos and confusion, or you will experience creativity and communication.. Viktoria Münzker Ferus

Molly Wang. Brooch: Rhizome No.2, 2019. Oxidized copper, sponge, leather cord, silver steel.. 7.5 x 4 x 75 cm. Photo by: Molly Wang. From series: Rhizome. 
. No centrality, no hierarchy, no expectation, no restriction.
. Molly's work is inspired by her passion for metalsmithing as it’s a low-tech and slow process allows for a more intimate relationship between her and her pieces. She enjoys the possibility of changing and creative freedom during making. They’re not planned nor can be fixed to a singular form. From the signifier to the signified, she creates the rhizome pieces to tell an expanding way of thinking and making, rather than the simple right way. She encourages wearers to experience the creative making process by observing and wearing her pieces in diverse ways without expectation and enjoy the freedom of wearing..
