Boh Runga’s creative journey has seen her transition through many stages, from music to jewellery design. Her latest collection, Shapes, is inspired by a painting by famous Buddhist monk Sengai Gibon.

The Shapes collection celebrates three simplistic forms; the circle, the triangle and the square.

The circle represents the formlessness of the infinite; the triangle is the beginning of all forms that the inquiring human mind with all its senses and ability to reason demands; and the square is the triangle doubled, this doubling continuing infinitely, the vastness of all things.

The sleek, modern pieces, including bracelets, earrings and pendants, create an opportunity for reflection and stylistic expression.

“Because Sengai’s artwork leaves much to the viewer’s imagination and interpretation, I like to think of how the images represent the transition that all of us are going through in our lives,” said Runga. “You are never really in a static place, you are always moving forward from one state to another. Your life is a fluid journey, not just a physical one, but one of your mind and spirit too.”
