Using everything from volcanic ash to crushed lava and artificial resin, the nature-inspired jewelry is nevertheless meant to reflect much more including contemporary social and architectural landscapes. Staskauskas says, "I call it performative sculpture and this includes basically any form and scale body related object. In other words--it’s a trigger point for characters behavior."
