Artist Statement: 

One metal pin is a found object and it became an axle of design and broach itself. It is simple and functional, that leads the design of this piece of jewelry to be minimal and stripped to its basic shapes.

Clean geometric forms and rotation change the look of the piece every time it or the wearer moves. By using such a small kinetic principle we can find the object itself changing its body and becoming something new.
