Till now, not much attention has been paid to the narrative in jewellery and this is strange. We are living in a culture in which the narrative is omnipresent and jewellery is treated in terms of material, style and concept, not in terms of the process of viewing and interpreting. Looking at jewellery, by describing what you see, is very helpful in getting an understanding of what it could mean. Sight and insight go hand in hand.
