Enchanted forest – Calamus series

The “calamus” series, latin for the word “branch” but also from the verb “calare” meaning “we summon/convoke”. I am inspired by branches during winter or during bloom and birds' nests. My aim is to stimulate the imagination of the viewer by using more unnatural materials that finally seem to be taken out of the floral world. One could call it my little “enchanted forest”.
The pieces have several options to be worn as the links are very movable and even can be tossed to a little heap.
