Abstract :
Touch is a powerful tool to gain "little pleasures of life" even though mostly we are not aware of this activity itself. However, most people today experience a shortage of tactile stimulation and this trend only intensifies. Interaction with objects around us gives the feeling of being in contact with the world: it calms down and gives satisfaction. In my research I do not look on touch only as a mean of putting on the jewellery piece but as a way to gain wide range of different sensations thus bringing tactility into consciousness. Theoretical and practical research within topic "Touch" resulted in jewellery pieces where wearer can follow the form of the piece of jewellery with the hand and use touch as a means of aesthetic appreciation and exploration.
In my master collection I distinguish two different approaches how to deal with tactility in jewellery. Visual tactility and contrasts is the first group of jewellery pieces where focus is on the hand pieces that give a different pleasant sensation when touching them. In the second group called Hand imprint the dominant element is the chain where hand-modelled elements still contain visual-tactile marks from the making process.
