Interview to Rachel Darbourne
The issue of standardisation within jewellery could easily turn into an essay running to many hundreds of words. In short, my answer is yes. I consider this a result of many complex issues, all interwoven and interconnected, such as: the commercial requirements of all galleries to facilitate their survival; the many, many levels within the discipline itself (from the hobbyist, to the product designer, to the art jeweller and so on) (...).
Barcelona, Klimt02, 25.09.2014
Recently we’ve heard a brilliant phrase coming from a well-known publisher: ‘Magazine is an ultimate tool of promotion’. CO magazine helps introducing and defining contemporary jewellery as artistic practice to a larger public. It literally puts contemporary jewellery alongside design, art, architecture and fashion magazines in a store display.

Interview to Yong Joo Kim
As the world becomes smaller and smaller, it becomes more and more important that we continually develop our own ideas and find our own voice. This includes trying to recognize where we stand in relation to others and their work, how the intentions behind our work is not only similar but also different from theirs.
