Organized serendipity

Let jewelry tell your story
 

In March 2021, Victoria Tonu (Vika Tonu) and Koen Snoeckx were brought together by the project “WeAr Design” (third-call winner of the EU-funded Worth Partnership Project). From their interaction, this “Organized Serendipity” artwork / jewelry collection was born.

The journey from here
 

If a person has a part of the artwork in its possession, it was probably a gift from someone with whom he/she has a special relationship. Once received one of the pieces of jewelry, it is entirely up to this person to decide what to do with it. The initial designs were professionally produced and curated by Vika Tonu. Yet, the nature of the materials and their (magnetic) connections allow the piece to evolve and to be changed. 

 

Because of the symbolism behind this artwork, the creators ask its beneficiaries to adhere to its philosophy. Whoever receives one of the jewelry pieces in another way than getting it directly from Koen Snoeckx, is asked to send a brief message stating who they are through any of the contact channels that are available via www.arteconomy.be or www.lusincus.be. All of them get our eternal gratefulness and we are curious to find out what life-changing collisions might come out of this project.

Stay tuned for updates and enjoy serendipity in the making…
