Ohuloss

Ohuloss, Castle in the Air, Jewellery from Estonia
The new Estonian jewellery of the 'Ohuloss' group probes itself, the world and life. It is a medium for communication without words, expressing the ambivalence of the modern attitude towards life. The young Estonian jewellery artists show that especially intelligent jewellery close to nature is very powerful. This jewellery reveals the human feelings of the wearer. The purpose of this jewellery, according to Kadri Mälk, lies in the quiet support of its wearers and in the discrete revelation of their identity.
