"During the process of transforming the waste into a "precious" material suitable for jewellery, the question "When is something precious?" was frequently asked. Factors that might add value to a worthless waste material were tested, for example: aesthetic qualities, form, hours of handicraft, the narrative etc. The result is a colourful jewellery collection with intricate patterns and with every piece of jewellery a certain amount of waste is reduced from the e-waste pile."
