The "In Between" jewelry collection offers a profound exploration of the concept of "home" from the perspective of the artist, who has spent over eight years as an expat in Germany. This deeply personal collection delves into the intricate facets of "home" – its physical, emotional, and comforting dimensions.

Each piece in this collection encapsulates the sensation of residing between two lands. It merges diverse elements, blending the old with the new, the familiar with the foreign. Crafted from stone, metal, wood and cotton thread, these pieces are infused with colours that symbolize the harmony that can be discovered in these contrasting worlds.

Through these distinctive designs, "In Between" captures the essence of straddling two homes, evoking emotions of both displacement and belonging. It encourages individuals to reflect on their own interpretations of "home" and to find the beauty that can emerge from this delicate equilibrium.

"In Between" serves as a poignant reminder that "home" is a dynamic and evolving journey, not a fixed location. It inspires us to embrace our experiences, even within the "in between" space. This collection celebrates the resilience of the human spirit and the inherent beauty that emerges during life's transformative moments.
