Concept of the jewelry piece : ” This is not a jewelry “, inspired by the painting of  Rene Magritte “Ceci n’est pas une pipe”:

Eng : When I think about the value of a jewel one word comes to my mind – precious. For me precious are the things that are not things. The smile of your child running through the wheat field is precious, the irreplaceable feeling of home, the warmth in your mothers eyes while she is caressing you, the health that allows you to make your dreams come true or simply, the freedom of being who you want to be is precious.
I chose fire as the essential symbol of life – this is illustrated through the matchstick. The map of the country is the image of home, the box representing a haven and I also chose red – the color of love. There is only one matchstick in the box – we only have one life! All these elements attempt to define what jewelry means to me.
Therefore this is not a jewel, because it is not a jewel in itself. The jewel is emotion!

Ro : Percep valoarea unei bijuterii , ca fiind pretioasa, iar pretioase pentru mine sunt in primul rand lucrurile care nu sunt lucruri. Pretios este zambetul copilului tau fugind prin lanul de greu, sentimentul de acasa de neegalat, caldura din privirea mamei care te mangaie pe crestet , sanatatea care iti permite sa iti transformi visele in realitatea sau pur si simplu libertatea de a fi cine vrei sa fii .
Am ales focul element esential vietii – sugerat de chibrit. Harta tarii, care reprezinta” acasa” ,cutia in sine care echivaleaza sentimentul protector si culoarea rosie care e simbolica pentru iubire.In cutie este un singur chibrit –pt ca o singura viata avem! Toate acestea exprima o parte din ce inseamna pentru mine bijuteria. Prin urmare aceasta nu este o bijuterie , pt ca bijuteria in sine nu e bijuterie. Bijuteria este emotie!
