Intro
I am a jewellery artist and secondary school teacher. In 2010 I realized a jewellery project in school to take part in the competition. I care a lot: Middle East Portable Discussion. For this project, the pupils turned old school material into jewellery. I wanted to encounter the pupils with contemporary jewellery in their art lesson, furthermore, the project aimed at triggering curiosity and start the conversation: The old materials are telling their very own stories and hopefully they will invite to talk. It was great and inspirational to see how creative the pupils handled the materials and transformed them into jewellery.
