Egle Silko Jewelry / Egle Sitkauskaite Lithuania / Estonia
Landscapes pendant / brooch
Piece created for Challenge 2023 Jewelry and Travel (maximum price 150€)
Materials silver, copper, bronze
With the piece presented in the Jewelry and Travel exhibition, Egle wants to capture the idea of places, memories, and how they affect us through materiality. It revolves around the feeling of belonging when moving from one place to another, adapting and being influenced by the new environment (e.g. places, culture, language, etc.), and yet staying somewhere in between, never fully blending in. Hopefully, all these new experiences which are not always comfortable, enrich us and our views and make us more aware and tolerant toward others, different than us.
