WHAT IS TheMagicalTree?
It is one of the most beautiful jewellery stands in the market. It is simple, modern and stylish. It can be used to organize your jewellery...
decorate your home...
or make a land art installation.
It was made with LOVE, IMAGINATION and CARE. It is a must have if you need something absolutely adorable for displaying bracelets, earrings, necklaces and rings.
TheMagicalTree is a very special jewellery stand because it likes to play with light and its shadows.
It is magical because it changes, just like trees do in different seasons, when you rearrange your jewellery on it.
TheMagicalTree is laser-cut from quality acrylic, which is hard wearing and has a beautiful shine. With this price, design and quality TheMagicalTree is an excellent choice.
Colours: transparent, glittering black, green, pink-orange
Size: 24 x 23 x 0.4 cm / 9.5” x 9.1” x 0.1”
In the future TheMagicalTree will be made in bigger sizes from eco mediapan and hemp board. It will be used as a coat stand for children, youngsters and adults.
PACKAGING & POSTING
I usually live and work in a space that is designed to every detail by me. My jewellery is precious to me that is why I was looking for a perfect jewellery stand for years all over internet and in shops, but most of them were over decorated. I needed something simple, minimalistic and pure in form. That’s how the basic transparent tree was born.
After playing with the tree, jewellery and the light that shines through it in my intimate creative space, some other ideas came to life. As a multimedia artist, I always start with a story that I want to tell first and this is a story of one huge family of people who are deeply in love with trees and who really care for this beautiful planet.
With this simple object I would like to inspire others to remember their childhood dreams and the magical world where everything is possible.
One is invited to let imagination fly, to play in this magical world and have fun by rediscovering one’s own creativity and sensitivity.
In November 2013 TheMagicalTree was launched in Ljubljana, where prominent Slovenian jewellery designers including Romi Bukovec, Petra Bole, Dalija Sega, Olga Košica and Rok Marinšek (OLGAFACESROK), Christoph Steidl Porenta, Žare Ognjenovič, Srečko Molk and Huberto Široka created their stories with their jewellery and TheMagicalTree.
Land art installations in Pondicherry, San Diego and Folsom happened in February and March.

Risks and challenges
Please have a look at TheMagicalTree Family Map and see how many people including Kerubin art team, our family and friends as well as jewellery designers are already the proud owners of TheMagicalTree. We have all the back ups for delivering large quantities of this item, because we cooperate with several top quality laser cutting and engraving companies, so there is no risk involved.
I can assure you that this campaign is not one of the disappointing ones where backers waited for ages for their pledges. It is of utmost importance to me that my project ends as it starts with professionalism and total dedication. But if the unpredictable happens, we will keep you posted. We are totally aware that we do not exist without our supporters.
In my twenty-four-year career, I have created and managed more than 150 art projects, mostly realised by exchanging my artworks that are in permanent installations and in private collections of sponsors, other artists who were invited to participate in my art projects, family, friends and team members all over the world. In this way I have been able to maintain independence and integrity. You are invited to see my retrospective at http://mirandarumina.com, http://kerubin.com/projects/, https://www.facebook.com/mirandaruminaart, https://www.facebook.com/miranda.rumina and my future project http://zenplus.eu.
By the way, I am already looking forward to meeting those of you who would like to visit the most beautiful lakes with me and my team at the end of May 2014. See you.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
