The ‘Insignia’ necklace originates in the ‘Chains for an Average Woman’ collection, which draws connections between self-identity and female archetypes, exploring how individuality develops against a background of economic and cultural conditions. ‘Insignia’ is also used as a reference to tradition, history and heritage. The chains are soldered and oxidised with tattoo patterns and heraldic symbols of shields and banners. The heraldic guardians are tattooed supporters of the wearer’s symbolic coat of arms.
