Symbiotic Jewelry
Product design

Can there be a symbiosis between jewelry and the human skin? Is it possible to get information about the pH-value of the skin, and what does it say about the health of the person wearing the jewelry?

Jewelry fabricated out of copper can, when worn on the skin, provide information about the skin condition. A coloration of the skin in a green tone is caused by the reaction of copper with skin with a low pH-value. The design of this collection is based on a close-up view of the human skin. The collection is completely hand-made - to preserve the old arts and crafts. The collection consists of three pieces: a collier made from copper that leaves a print on the skin as a result of the reaction between copper and the skin, a bracelet made from silver and copper with the same characteristics.
