"I love using different materials mainly silver, but also paper, bones, stones, computer junk… every one has his own property and value. The value of jewellery is an agreement between artist and user. The world offers endless things to discover for someone who knows where to look. On the other hand, if you look at the world through a strict ideology, you'll only see what you have learned to see“.
Eila Minkkinen

"J’aime utiliser toutes sortes de matériaux, principalement l’argent, mais aussi, papier, os, pierres, rebut informatique… chacun avec ses propriétés et sa valeur. Le monde offre un nombre infini de choses à découvrir à quelqu’un qui sait voir.Mais si on regarde ce monde à travers le filtre d’une idéologie, on ne voit que ce qu’on a appris à voir".
Eila Minkkinen
