"I took Artemivska salt, the town of the producer, which is now destroyed, and molded the forms from which the prints were removed and metal ornaments were cast.
The symbolic image of the woman and other forms resemble artifacts that are thrown out of the salty sea, like today many Ukrainians were thrown out of their native land. Ukrainian salt became a metaphor and the basis of this collection." - Julie.
The second part of the collection from Maria Gorgon:
"My porcelain jewelry is a reinterpretation of ancient Ukrainian sculptures and forms. They are like a symbol of strength and indomitability and fragility at the same time."
