Mireia Calaf
Tarragona, Catalunya (Spain) 1982.

Her work starts with the need of giving jewellery a meaning beyond aesthetics by using it as a log of life experiences. The jewels speak of subjects so human as love, sickness, addictions, conflicts… The chains are used to represent situations where there is a lack of freedom whatever the cause is: a bond, a possession, an addiction or an attachment. 

To represent all those situations she use a language that is expressive, metaphoric and mostly intimate. 

Despite it is a personal or someone else´s experience; my work becomes the link between the jewel and this experience.   Those subjects may not be the most appealing but they all contain a moral to learn from.
