I made those pieces unwearable because the topic “factory farming” is an unwearable topic to me. The heavy and uncomfortable character of the Jewelry represents the feelings I have when I think about the animals which must have those feelings, too. The model (Daphne Stahl) is a vegan. She is the perfect contrast to the heaviness of my work. I want to expand the concept of jewelry and to “cure” the carnivores by extreme confrontation.
