ALINA JESSIPOVICH

We all are hunters and dreamers. Small found objects when grouped together form magic oases, temples, buildings and city skylines. Childhood memories coated in gold and silver turn into treasure for adults. Nowadays megapolises "swallow" people, but you can keep your own fairy-tail city right on your finger or standing in front of you on your desk. It's yours.

Artist's Statement

As a child I loved to play with ‘Polly Pocket’ toys; intrigued by the tiny world in my hand.  This fascination led me to develop jewellery that is a landscape of its own: something to play with, look at and imagine things about, right on your finger.  Inspiration comes from big cities, densely populated areas, and urban skylines.  These jewels are made from small, found objects when grouped together form cities of their own.  In today’s consumer culture, objects are quickly disposed of, having a longer life as rubbish than they were used.  My jewellery gives these discarded objects new lives and new meanings.
