The Getting Closer to Harmony series are a part of the MIMOOL project, with exhibitions and seminars that were held in Denmark, Japan and South Korea, August through September, 2017

The MIMOOL theme explores the notion that even seemingly insignificant living beings are important and that all living beings should be treated with respect

The necklaces are based on highly magnified photos of insect heads, which have then been simplified and stylized,embracing the notion of repetition and patience,relating to Buddhism,

Meditation and yoga.
With regards to technique, I use an ad-hoc embroidery stitch where I build up the piece gradually. With this series, the entire piece is constructed in embroidery.
This gives a more homogenous feel and I like that there is little interruption
between the ‘pendant’ and the necklace part – they flow together and create a more comprehensive aesthetic.
