Kuno kūnui

At the heart of this work is a piece of jewellery that at a certain occasion can perform a function other than that of being a piece of jewellery, and a detail that, upon fitting/meeting the body, paradoxically becomes a piece of jewellery.
The focus of my creative work is dual functionality and the relationship between jewellery and the wearer’s body. I am exploring how a decorative element of an art object can become a piece of jewellery.
