The inspiration of this hair clip comes from the hair accessory called “aigrette” from the Rococo period.

The overall inspirations are from those amazing artworks and jewelries that are made of disposable objects and materials. I saw the brand “Papermelon” founded by Devi Chand, which is devoted into sustainable jewelries. I thought it was a really fascinating idea to make jewelries that is both beautiful and sustainable. Thus, the concept of my collection is turning a disposable product to a piece of art. This set won participation award of the first ESSERE Design Exhibition.

This set is consisted of a bracelet and a ring. This is the same theme as the enamel piece. These two are seen as a series.
