AMBER, SHELLS & STONES
Ivana Helsinki year 2018 collection story is Amber, Shells & Stones. Paola found an old amber pendant with an insect fossilized inside it from her mother’s jewellery box. It was strangely captivating and enchanting, both beautiful and melancholic. Time and life confined inside copper and yellow amber. The same kind of magic is within other stones and minerals, too. Compressed time; energy and passing years crystallized. Strong and delicate. Along came pearls, seashells and crystals, the jewels of nature.
