Universal Declaration of Human Limits

The necklace has been constructed as a slave chain to discuss the form and use of jewelry and also emphasize the heaviness and discomfort of the limits.

In every frame (does not matter which type, frames are typical version of limiting) there have been inserted real visas of mine. Visas to cross the borders that we have created…

At the back of the necklace there have been placed a typical version of residence permit, passport’s stamps to enter and exit for a country as other examples of limitation of freedom of travel and residence.

Finally at the back side of the last frame it has been inserted articles from “the Universal Declaration of Human Rights” to remind ourselves who we are and what we have without question.

Sevdaluk Brooch

In the back stage of this work we are going little bit further and starting with the inspiration..

Here is the ingredients: 1 love story (preferably finished), 1 good old song* tells whole story (unfortunately in Turkish), 2 pieces of hair from 2 different persons (preferably in love once), regular stones (from any river side) and silver (40 micron)..

It is an old tradition in the small towns of Turkey that lovers cut and give a piece of hair to each other to show their love and keep them in a handkerchief and if this love story (Sevdaluk – as they say in the north part of Turkey/Karadeniz) ends, they are giving back the hairs…

When it comes to regular stones that we use…Sometimes, those lovers go river side and enjoy throwing the stones to the river (this is the only time they spend together and only place since they don’t have Starbucks in town)…Again if our love story goes bad as told in this song, stones need to be collected from the river to rewind all story…

Ok, let’s start jewellery making before bursting into tears..

Here is our symbolic silver handkerchief…
