Image: Crafting Calm in the Urban Seascape dives into the chaotic and overpowering urban environment to explore how accessories can serve as personal sanctuaries for everyone. This forms the foundation of my accessories collection, aimed at enhancing individual well-being. Through analyzing the structure of urban landscapes and boats, this study reflects on my experiences and struggles with insecurity and indecisiveness. These complex structures inspire the designs within the collection, which seek to mirror the journey of a boat navigating through turbulent seas. Each piece in the collection delves into the aesthetic and layered traits of boats —enduring symbols of protection and personal growth. The accessories are designed to provide stability and confidence, helping wearers easily navigate the urban chaos and offering a blend of style and sanctuary in the daily hustle of city
