Eligius Preis 2019, brooch, Izabella Petrut Art Jewelry Kunstschmuck Through deconstructing his old used roller-skates, in this jewelry series, I narrate a love story. It is a collection of memories materialised in  brooches, necklaces, bracelets and rings. The pieces are brought together through one color each. I use 3 colours: denim blue, a very dark grey and white, colours that come from the ones the roller-skates had.

Love, Izabella
