It's true that some of our most creative moments can emerge when we’re feeling down. That ‘lightning bolt’ effect is often transformative and powerful, leading to an adrenaline-fuelled time of creativity. That’s exactly what happened for my long-time collaborator, Veronica Morales Angulo, who used the sadness of a separation as a time for self-reflection.
She explains: “This project was born after my separation which, although it was my choice and a decision made by me, took me on a long journey where I had to revisit my inner self.”
In her sadness, she turned to something that had long fascinated her – mysticism – and began exploring tarot cards, oracles, and the mysterious powers of the universe. Despite feeling like she was living through an “existential crisis” she found comfort in the unknown and a kinship with other women going through difficult times. Her latest digital artworks reflect this feeling of rediscovering one’s power through exceptional high jewellery, and I am pleased to share the results with you here. Each piece has its own name and symbolism, like a distinctive chapter in a larger book, and I am assured that the series will grow and develop with time. I hope you find your own meaning in these creations.
