The idea of a common show arrived spontaneously, but about it in a moment. We live in different cities, and meet not really often. Conversations about the jewellery are a true rarity.  But from many years exists between us thread of sympathy and a common understanding. Quadratic brooch accompanies our work from always. Jan “invented” it as a first one. In one of recent projects in the workshops in Kraków and Warsaw at the same time we came up (and it was not a first time like that) with the similar ideas. On the quadratic surfaces appears words. In my brooches are the names of months, in Jan’s – i.a. the fragments of the words from songs. When we saw the works one of another, suddenly came the idea: what if we’ll do a common exhibition, in which the main idea would be quadratic brooch? Yes B2! And this is how it started…
