Description

Amber is a fossil from around 44 million years ago; it is well known with its history and myths and was also widely used during Soviet Union. I have seen it so many times polished and placed in metal frames. My great-grandmother used to have plenty of this kind of jewellery.

Repeated use of a similar approach to the material creates stereotypes. Amber is usually valued by its size, color, and inclusions. I aim to destroy this familiar perception and its accepted value by sewing, dyeing, and ignoring its inclusions; stepping away from what I have seen so many times before.

I use 14 K red gold whose, already obsolete, name is Russian gold. In contrast to that, I place it together with an amber cord made from amber fiber that was developed around ten years ago in Riga Technical University. I either spin or weave the cords by hand, dyeing it afterwards.
