“I can handle it” is a series of rings that resemble handles on a chest of drawers. They are hand-cut from copper, soldered, and powder-coated in bright colours. They look like large stylized flowers. The rings are more like clasps that encircle several fingers at the back and are then led around to end in large flowers that almost completely cover the fingers. With reference to Susan Stewart's book "On Longing: Narratives of the Miniature, the Gigantic, the Souvenir, the Collection" (1993), Elisa Zorraquin refers to the possibility of things to open up a secret world, to reveal narratives and actions beyond the usual areas of perception. The rings are intended to convey the feeling of familiarity and spontaneity. Elisa Zorraquin sees them as tools that help us to find our way around the world and to enjoy every day, the profane wonders and beauties of the environment. With her work she tries to penetrate the boundaries between the self and the world by means of jewellery, relying on close observation of the home and the immediate environment.
