NATIVE GEOMETRY

Geometry comes from the word geo  which means earth (in Greek) and the metro/ metrisi which also means measument ( in Greek). As a result the etymology of  world geometry contains and connects the world (earth) with the world of the intellenge (measurement). 

In sacred geometry, God created the world based on geometry plan means, which refer to the beginning of human time.

The Indigenous Native American used the geometric symbols and motifs in everyday objects as an attemption to capture the harmony which the universe is made of.

This series of jewellery aims to explore the patterns, shapes and colours of Aztec, presents jewellery from gold-plated pink gold-plated and silver-plated brass with traditional embroidery on the metal.
