Recreating a memory of a white beach as a brooch, two parts of the brooch: one is a hand textured silver piece with a brooch pin and another is decorative silver corals with shells, a coral and a rutilated quartz. They are connected together with two jump rings behind the brooch and make some movements.

I visited to Okinawa, Japan where has beautiful white beachs made from dead corals and their sands. I had picked up coral pieces from there and kept them in a box. I discovered them in my cabinet a couple years later and I realised they should have been shown as a part of the nature rather than staying in a box!
Since then I have been creating `White Coral Beach` collection and inspired from corals’ various unique textures, shapes and how they were originally gathering on the beach.
