"We did not lie to you, we told you about monsters. They made you laugh and tremble.... Yet if chance had wanted it, you could have been one of them." Freaks, T. Browning,1932.
These jewels refer to repulsion/seduction and are objects of anxiety and fascination. They suggest you should metamorphose and reveal your monstrous side; you should not invent a more beautiful body, more ‘Instagramable,’ via cosmetic surgery and cosmetics, as our consumer society suggests us to do.
My jewelry focuses rather on a body freed from its own anatomy, breaking with the dominant norm. Even if we can call these objects simulacra, they are still a break with the idea of good taste and elegance.
