Mirror, mirror on the wall, who is the fairest of them all?
This is the famous speech from the Disney movie Snow White and Seven Dwarfs. The first mirror for human beings was the reflecting water.  
We see our face for the first time by the mirror and this is to be the first step of self-awareness. A Mirror reflects our reality but at the same time shows us many kinds of different worlds. 
A Mirror could be a metaphor for beauty, truth, infinity, religion, protection, dialogue. And they all have a strong connection with jewellery.
The goal of the workshop is that the participants try to find individual relationships between jewellery and the mirror and transform it into a piece of jewellery.
