Kristiina’s work always releases the triggers of imagination. Willful capriciousness entices one to roam where the noise of the street does not reach. And what is imagination? The ability to allow your soul to fly. It is the most boundless freedom we have been given. – Tanel Veenre, Estonian jewellery artist [From the book The Happy Few. Tallinn, 2017]
