The series of brooches “Vessels and Routes” are VESSELS of remembrance. I set out to capture the scent of memories and in this venture, decided to use an unusual sense to perceive jewelry, their SMELL. The smell of tobacco along with the distinct aroma of ‪Chios Mastic Gum are a gate to memories and mind travels. They provoke the wearer to contemplate on personal memories and track back their own roots along with planning new ROUTES for the future.
