Mind Your Values, 2012

The word ‘value’ in a jewelry context obviously sends one’s mind towards valuable and precious, but the title refers in its entirety also to one’s personal set of values.

The project takes its starting point in a general wonderment about my own behavior patterns and mindset as well as a reflection upon values characterizing Western society today. Among other things the Danish tendency to be somewhat conceited can advantageously be turned into curiosity, a call for a humorous, loving and critical eye.

With these jewels I put physical form to thoughts about values in general. The theme MIND YOUR VALUES is visualized from different angles, from the personal point of departure to general observations about the world I live in.
