The North of Bohemia is very famous for glass and metal bijouterie, which was the topic of our meeting at the Symposium in Jablonec nad Nisou. The inspiration for me was the town by itself. The necklaces were created from rests of old tangled chains, which I found in a drawer at the High school of Applied Arts. Instead of classical pendants I used dried apples. The apple is a typical symbol of the city. The necklaces show a close relationship between bijouterie industry and the town Jablonec nad Nisou.
