UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
Character and external shape of a subject allow to change new design of an ornament. In the lively nature one period changes to another. Spring follows winter and morning comes after night. The colors also change as well as the atmosphere. This principle of replacement, alternation of the images is brought forward into the adornments of the «Asia Metamorphosis», the collection where two different states, two unconstrained images reflected in one object. Movable elements of the construction make possible to change the character and appearance of the ornament.
OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
This is a two-way brooch! It employs the principle of falling in one direction or another domino stones.
We offer only one of the parties. Aim the seeds at the other side and the flip side will open.
Decor and plastic of each party is completely independent. We see two different characters.
In parallel to one subject, there are two different images. Playing and enjoying, you form your own artistic image.

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
When I create this jewelry I use my copyrighted technology called "Cloud brocade", which is composed of multiple
overlapping and hot fusing precious metals of different colors and shades of one to another.
Subsequent forging and cold processing of gold and silver can make the metal surface texture of textile.

In the first stage there was one problem - the simplicity and reliability of the design.
Suitable analogues was not found. The most attractive idea struck two weathervanes,
while turning in one direction or another.
When I found a simple and robust design, the frame and movable parts on hinges,
all other art questions got into a purely artistic decision. But that is another topic.
