"Nothing is more precious than the time we have. The distillation of thought and experience rendered in material is the territory of the artist. The outright choice of material is not necessarily as important as any relationship between idea and material that the artist may hone. Objects can be made which invite the attachment of notions of preciousness both for the artist and the audience. The scale of jewellery makes it a particularly attractive vehicle for this.Nothing is more precious than the time we have.

"Rien n'est plus précieux que le temps dont nous disposons.
Le territoire de l'artiste, c’est concrétiser la pensée et l’expérience.
Le choix pur et simple du matériau n'est pas plus important que la relation aiguisée et perfectionnée par l’artiste entre idée et matière.
Les objets peuvent être fabriqués en cherchant à inciter, tant l’artiste que le public, à y attacher des notions de préciosité. Et dans ce cas, c’est l’échelle du bijou qui le rend particulièrement séduisant."
Adam Paxon
