Abstract [en]

Traditions that shape our identity and beliefs are constantly undergoing transformation through our interactions with new cultures. At the same time, these interactions enhance our awareness of where we come from, and where we truly belong. In this thesis I investigate the history of jewellery in India through a contemporary perspective and interpretation. My project narrates my transformative journey from the rich tapestry of Indian traditions towards the contemporary western culture. The subject of Indian jewellery is vast and complex, the enquiry is just the beginning of the journey. Therefore, my goal is to discover linkages between the age-old traditions and the fast-changing world of today. I create a dialogue between traditional, ritualistic Indian jewellery and an irreverent choice of materials and methods that have been conceived from my experiences in the West. Through this dialog, I explore the push and pull between traditional ethos and modern sensibilities, and the transformation it engenders.
