Noon Passama: Portraits
The series “Portraits” plays with balancing on the line between contrasting aspects. My subjects of interest are archetypal and classical structures of jewellery and how to translate them into new contexts, where forms, materials, and techniques are applied to their broadest senses by means of conceptual approaches.

The series “Portraits” plays with balancing on the line between these contrasting aspects. The collection is an ongoing project. Each edition is a new representation of characters opening for interpretation, identification, and imagination.

My subjects of interest are archetypal and classical structures of jewellery and how to translate them into new contexts, where forms, materials, and techniques are applied to their broadest senses by means of conceptual approaches.
