Have you ever thought about all the people who held the handrail before you? To touch something that other people have touched before is to share an experience together, something that can not be reached by mere sight. All the objects we surround ourselves with in our everyday lives are shaped slowly by our use and our bodies. I see these objects as connections between people, beyond time and space. To participate in shaping, as we all are, is to be a part of a whole.
In my project I have taken advantage of used everyday objects that no longer had any owner. With my jewelry and hand–items I give parts of the items a new life. The more or less pristine material is an invitation to the wearer to leave traces and bring their story into the objects in a more distinct way. Thus continues not only the older history, but also meets the present into the future.
