Collaboration work with photographer Olivia “Oh” Olszewski. How is the jewelry interacting with the body? How does the body play with the jewelry?

This is a story about drawing. Lines, bold lines, thin lines, straight lines, curved lines. All kinds of lines. Using different types of pens, various shapes of brushes. Once the black ink is dry, how about making it come alive on the body? Let’s wear the drawings!
This is also a story about contrasts. How the chunky connective pieces contribute to a soft and lively rope dance. The black color gives the object a uniform body, and it also brings a subtle contrast when light plays on the different surfaces. Silky, snaky, still, mat.
This story is finally about playing, trying, experimenting. How to work on variations to create different shapes with the same rope, the same tube. Cut, file, combine, braze, paint, thread, glue. Try again, a different way. And again.
In the end, this is all about bringing matter to life. Tube and rope are complementary, and working on the « how to connect » has formed basic industrial materials into simple but elaborate shapes, between beating hearts and alphabet signs. Assembling signs is how one creates reality, isn’t it?
