Personally, the colour BEIGE stands for plain, everyday things you can find but things that should not be taken for granted because they are too commonly used. I chose daily tools in my studio that are beige and transformed them into Art Jewellery. Through this process, I wanted to emphasize the traces built up gradually by time as I worked with them; replacing the traces of labour in the tools to something valued as gold.
