This is a series of brooches I made as a part of my thesis work in the Lahti Institute of Design.

I wanted to make something that would invite you to touch it and feel nice and calming under your fingertips. Reminding me of meditation, something you can focus on in moments of anxiety and distress. Block the outside world for a moment and focus on the surface.

Surfaces as a meditative, calming aid is a concept I am still really interested in and would like to explore further at some point.
