pendants & bracelets

The pieces are made from calming wood and strong bronze. The pendants resemble a kind of power animal that is supposed to protect the wearer and give him strength. Through the shapes and materials I try to engage the wearer in a play and trigger sensory experiences. This is helpful in dealing with anxiety and other difficult emotions. I see the pieces as a talisman which can become your guardian.
