Jewellery is an art form, along the lines of music, painting, sculpture, theatre, etc. You cannot call jewellery an applied art, because it’s application is not purely functional like that of a ceramic pot. The function is emotional and very intimate. And it´s worth something. Emotional function means you don´t have to wear it, or it doesn´t have to be an object with a pin…It functions for our senses. Jewellery is an investment in emotion.
