With her striking «Liberation» choker, Mara Kartali moves beyond the limits of jewelry design to enter the realm of artistic creation… A conceptual «ball and chain» are ceremoniously broken in this piece, to give way to a new liberated self. What used to be the shackles
entrapping us into conformity, alienation and restraint melts into a flutter of butterflies, an expression of beauty, imagination, and freedom. The universal symbol for transformation, the butterfly is also a strong reminder of the agonizing process to reveal our true identity. Liberation does not come easy, but once we break free, the sky is the limit!
Mara Kartali’s "Liberation" choker is a statement piece in 18-carat white gold (black rhodium plated), set with natural sapphires and natural white brilliant-cut diamonds. The choker comes in different neck sizes and is valued at 20.900Euros.
For to be free is not merely to cast off one’s chains, but to live in a way that respects and enhances the freedom of others.
