Tradition + Protest: Reimaging Adornment as Symbols of Ukrainian Resistance

My design installation is a tribute to the courage, strength, resilience and beauty of the Ukrainian Women.

My interpretation of a traditional wedding ensemlble. This small installation is inspired by current symbols of protest (sunflowers) and the popular wearing of traditional wedding flower crown (The VINOK), ancient adornment (The Kolty) Earrings/Pendants with Venetian glass necklace (The Pazyorky - the most desirable glass accessories because hand-made beads were transported from Venice. 

As a jewelry artist, how does one go about creating a special project for a themed show! Inspiration . . . Sketching . . . Thinking out of the Box .  . . Perseverance . . . Patience . . . More Perseverance . . .  and a Lot of Luck!

Here is a pictorial journal of my design process from beginning to end.

FIRST OFF  - Being Inspired. What the heck am I going to do?

 

SECOND  - SKETCHING   IDEAS

 

THIRD STEP  - How to make it?  Picking materials. Making patterns. Soldering parts.
