People love to attribute special powers, properties and meanings to objects. In this way, things become the guardians of tales, truths and promises – as in every fairy story. Even in times of scientifically-based detachment and fake news, people still wish for happiness, health, beauty, love, admiration, infallibility, eternal life. Each of the pieces of jewellery presented is accompanied by a text that suggests a deal, a contract or an agreement, but that on second glance has a drawback and whose consequences are not immediately foreseeable. The jewellery objects represent an invitation to contemplate things – at the same time as the corresponding promise beguiles the viewer.
