The Flying Fish commando is my current and only collection of jewelry
I love to build narratives and create imaginary characters, and it is from these that my collections spawn. The objects I create are the bridge between the real world and those that I create. They permit to make my imaginary Landscape a reality in the same way that I used my toys to suit my game as a child.
The design of the object is created based on rules of the universe and the needs of the characters. In this way I don’t really take any decision on the design of the object whilst I’m making it, many decisions are in fact taken whilst creating the tales they come from.
I have a philosophy that people’s imagination fades away as we age, with the constraints of normalcy in adulthood bearing down on us. Everybody should, for at least one hour a day use their imagination and play like we would as children. However, if an adult starts to put on a cowboy costume after leaving the office, society will think he is ready for psychiatric service.
I feel that my jewellery will enable people to re-engage with their imagination and play like cowboy’s or Indian’s once again.
I consider jewellery design as an opportunity to further these ideas and as a good way for me to share it with people and ask them to take part. Escaping with the Flying Fish Commando is such a relief for me and I feel that others too could need to open the door to another world at times, and become for a moment the captain of a Secret Army or a loony moustache telescopic man whilst wearing and even playing with the objects I have created………….
Thank you to take part of my world
Kind Regards Mademoiselle Sevadjian
