"The early invention of the personal ornament is one of the most fascinating cultural experiments in history. The common element among such ornaments is that they transmit meaning to others. They convey an image of you that is not just your biological self"  Francesco d’Errico, French National Centre for Scientific Research
"People have been making jewellery for approximately 100,000 years - make something new. No pressure"    Louise Perrone, Jewellery Instructor
