Fractals: Expressing Your Existence Through Symbolic Manifestation of the Inner Universe
The aim of Fractals is to manifest Jewelry/wearable art that combines natural elements, literal representation of nature, and creative abstraction, inspired by the Universe.
The namesake was chosen through the observance of nature as an artist, and how she so gracefully connects every element by mimicking qualities/repeating patterns in her overall composition we know as the Universe.
The world/worlds within us are lush with forests of veins, our life controlled by a strong firey heart, radiating blood into our veins as the rays of the sun feed the trees, while our lungs *are* the atmosphere of our inner existence. Made up primarily of water, like the Earth, us humans move with the sea, affected naturally by the lunar phase as it affects the tides.
Every piece in Fractals attempts to remind the wearer that the outer Universe flows through us, lives inside of us; that we are but a microcosm of such grand masterpiece, which dances as a whole in exquisite fractals, much like a kaleidoscope.
The process involves letting Nature swim through me unconsciously, automatically, to inspire pieces that are evocative of spiderwebs, nests, the ocean horizon, that each charm may serve as a magickal segue (talisman) between the natural environment within and subjective perception/connection to this, and the larger, objective world around us.
Upon wearing these pieces may the wearer be instantly reminded of the beauty, power and intelligence that exists in our environment, and as a result, increase/create awareness of the power and intelligence that resonates within.
