Rawbijou

HKD narrates the story of a goddess-like woman from the future. One that inhabits bold architecture and concrete landscapes in silver makeup and sensuous robes. She strives to mold her body into an edgy landscape with her jewelry stacks. The Spirit of Saturn engulfs her world. She lives neither in the East nor the West, but creates her own dream world.

‘Rawbijou’, is a play on lines and winding architectural hoops. Drawing in metal: on and around a woman’s body. It explores notions of positive and  negative space, by using the female body  as a site to sculpt out morphed geometries while paying particular attention to body language. The easily stackable rings, draw on fingers with expressive lines, volumes, and silhouettes of gold, blurring the line between body art and jewelry.The collection takes the hooped earring form in classic jewelry as a starting point, redesigning it into a modern hoop wave form. The single hoop earring is made for the girl who can never find her ‘other pair’ and does not care! While the single hoop ear-cuff is designed for the girl who embraces bold statements. No piercings are needed; the ear-cuff simply hugs the ear. The single pearl interchangeable ring-earring however, is an ode to the cool girl who never wants to grow tired of a static piece. She wears it as a ring or transforms it into an earring by simply plugging in a pearl! Like a miniature piece of architecture, the pearl levitates within its rhodium frame, and is finally trapped to fit on to the ear.
