By making art jewelry, artists create visual poetry. Literature and Jewelry are both describing ideas, imagery, sounds or smells. They are, both, telling a story, expressing emotions, advocating ideas, examine or question values of ourselves and our culture. 

These works are inspired by Yiannis Ritsos’ poem “Moonlight Sonata” which revolves around the subject of loneliness and the alienation of the individual. Refers to the concept of time, and the emphasis placed on moonlight is of particular importance, since unlike the life-giving light of the sun that calls to action, moonlight requires reckoning and reminiscing, requires confronting and evaluating  the past.
