Doris Betz: Moments Like This

Making my jewellery feels like having a mystery-flight-ticket in the pocket, not knowing where one will end up. But at the same time I do have an aim. In the end there should be a damned good piece of jewellery. I always try to invent processes I cannot control, I try to make things happen, I’m spontaneous and attentive, I follow my instinct and also my experience. This process of not knowing, not wanting, just playing, staying free, being without intention, casual…and suddenly getting excited…and then recognizing the point when one has to take control again, is a balancing act.
