The idea behind the research study lies mainly in the traveling art of the artist, as well as in her friendliness and affection for the poor young performers of the circus, as well as in the refreshing of old recreation shows. The resilient nation of Pakistan has long suffered the turmoil of terrorist attacks. Such heinous acts against civilians and security forces have created, albeit short-lived, a sense of demoralization in the society. The research was conducted as a qualitative analysis and covered the back story of homelessness and at-risk Circus youth / artists, life style (container / cottage), difficulties, learning, travel, and management, etc. It is a unique attempt in Pakistan's Art Studio to design and manufacture contemporary jewelry pieces (brooches) reflecting the circumstances of the Circus youth / workers / artists' lifestyle, physical and emotional integrity was a rich source of inspiration that motivated me during my replication and analysis process. For circus artists, the carnival continues to travel; it keeps moving from one city to another to perform and entertain people. Hence highlighting their societal challenges and being closely associated to political, cultural and artistic realities. The art pieces of the project help to illustrate and understand the lives of circus performers, deprived of the freedom of the conditions under which they work, and the fun fashion they adopt in return.
