Glisten. Iced eyes that hurt.
Listen. Mine rights that lurk.
Christen. High, high I rise.
Weaken. Low, low they cry.
Flicker. Diamonds that blind.
nothing is forever.
Are diamonds your best friend? Why do we rely on them to feel empowered, richer and be socially accepted? Have we tied our worth to a god-like object and in the process become objectified?
Diemonds Fauxever explores the nuances and conflicts in the heavily marketed world of diamonds.
The collection features structural 3D printed diamond rings that are made look to like they were frozen in ice, in time, forever..or perhaps, not.
A tongue-in-cheek voice is carried throughout the collection with pieces such as the Diamond explosion necklace – where a 3D printed ring, embedded within a bioresin trapeze-shape pendant, has no sign of the diamond in the prong as it has exploded into tiny fragments of itself. To further poke fun at the diamond-obsessed world, every piece is inscribed with humorous titles such as Global mining and Caged diamond.
