Beauty of Energy

The project is driven by the idea of connection between a human being and the environment, our recklessness in using natural resources and irresponsibility in production/consumption of energy. This theme became an inspiration to my current work; it was also strongly influenced by Victor Papanek and his idea of “Responsibility of design”.

 

Using jewellery as a medium I aimed at pointing out the preciousness of energy and its beauty. The aesthetic beauty of fine jewellery as well as its most common materials such as copper, silver and gold were combined with contemporary jewellery for its ability to clearly convey concept in a straightforward way. I started my collection with the idea of showing the beauty of attributes of energy in an environment where it is more common to see precious stones and pearls. By placing them in such position I wanted to show how precious batteries, wires and bulbs can be.

 

Nowadays people are very separated from nature as more and more gadgets flood our personal lives and separate us both from the environment and the society we currently live in. Using jewellery as a medium I aimed at pointing out the preciousness of energy and its beauty. Through the contrast of electric light and shadow, transparency of the form and lightness of the structure I wanted to bring the feeling of joy and tranquillity.

I developed the idea further and produced three more ring designs. All the rings can be worn as any other jewellery pieces, but in order to reveal the true beauty of energy they have to be connected to a power source. They are very conceptual because the batteries required to power up that beauty are bulky, heavy and expensive – to show that energy is beautiful and elegant, but is undervalued.

How long can I make the ring light up before replacing batteries; how much money will it cost.
