Memento (Noun): A souvenir, a reminder of past events. Little things that trigger a memory of a specific person, place or time, things we keep, helping us reflect and reminisce.
Kirsten's graduate collection focuses on the sentiment of memento and our urge to collect and store memories. Taking inspiration from her personal experiences and combining a love of travel with a fascination of architectural forms, this collection expresses a personal narrative of travels and memories. Through the technique of photo etching, Kirsten uses her own collection of photographs and mementoes to create delicate jewellery pieces. Each piece of jewellery acts as a keepsake, giving the wearer a tactile and tangible way to reminisce.
Kirsten offers a commission service so if you would like to commission a piece of Memento jewellery please email Kirsten - firstname.lastname@example.org.
