I chose brass as a classic jewellery material for my first design. Its reflecting and sparkling appearance creates curiosity and fascination. The shape is oriented on very clean and modern jewellery. It can be combined with many different styles.
My second design tries to be even more visible. Here I brought the object in front of the ear. Due to its location right on the skin I chose porcelain as my main material. Its surface is very soft, warms up over time but is sanitarily clean. It is oriented on original jewellery material such as bone or teeth.
„Amputees often suffer a loss of self-image. I wanted to transmute what
might be considered a disfigurement into something marvelous and exotic.
I wanted to create a hand that would no longer cause shame and repulsion. I wanted the amputees themselves to be proud to have a prosthetic
hand and pleased to look at it. And for the people around them, I wanted
the prosthetic hand to be an object of healthy curiosity, a work of art.“Jacques Monestier
