Intro
Through years of study, up to the Master's degree in Jewellery Art, Jussi Järvinen has built a strong artistic language. With well-prepared research and questions grown out from own personal experiences, the work is honest and grounded. Jussi´s degree work consists not of many elements, but the few used are very well chosen and always in the right size and placement. Hearts, lion and letters… rope, chain and aluminium…  Shapes, symbols and materials that gives recognition to something familiar, an understanding wide and global. The source and reference in the work is jewellery, but when enlarged to size out of wearability, Jussi also neutralises them, not to be related to any specific person or gender. The work by Jussi is brave, strong and personal, and speaks not with one voice, but with many.

My degree project examines the role jewellery plays in gender construction and the relationship between queer identity and jewellery. I made a series of jewellery based on my own cultural background and lived experiences as a queer person. My three-piece series of jewellery is not intended to be worn but instead, it references the archetypal jewellery forms.  

The project comments on the cis-heteronormative conventions of jewellery and moves from personal to queer politics. The series of jewellery is composed of sand casted aluminium heart charms, the heraldic lion of Finland pendant and letter charms on the chain made of aluminium rod.
