Today I was talking with Alisa from DALIS Jewelry.
Jewelry in museums
In the last years I’ve been found of beautiful jewelries, especially after living in Belgium and visiting diamond museums, like DIVA.
To tell by truth, in my early 20-ss I didn’t understand obsession with precious stones, until I visited Rijksmuseum in Amsterdam (2008), and there was an amazing, but controversial exhibition of a human skull covered by 8,601 flawless diamonds. The artwork was named ” For the love of God” and made by artist Damien Hirst.
I remember it was a several – level security check and huge amount of people waiting in line; but that feeling, coming into totally black room, and the only light pointed to the diamond skull under the glass protection, that made diamonds shine in all colors of rainbow, is something that hunts me after all these years. The realization, that it was once a human being was scary, but at the same time it was unbelievable beautiful and magnificent.
“Diamonds have an image of purity and light. They are given as a pledge of love and worn as a symbol of commitment.” – Peter Singer
Instagram jewelry pages
So no wonder I started to love jewelry, and with the development of social media platforms I started to follow different instagram pages to get inspiration from these shiny things.
One of the pages I followed was Dalis jewelry.
When I started ”corona talks’ project I wrote a pm to hear if they would be interested to talk on zoom with me and tell about their project.
I got a ”yes”, so after some days I was able to talk with Alisa, who makes these jewelries.
One of the earrings I liked on Alisa’s instagram @dalis_jewelry were bright yellow ones from the summer collection.
During our zoom conversation I learned, that Alisa is as sunny and positive, as the jewelry she makes.
