Uncomfortable Jewelry By Oleksandra Gerasymchuk
- Charmaine Li
In the project ‘Autodiscipline Wearable Jewelry’, French designer Oleksandra Gerasymchuk developed jewelry pieces that explore the relationship between beauty and discomfort. Each piece was designed so that the person must adopt a certain position, often stiff and straight, in order to wear it correctly. “The project is questioning jewellery’s role, which identifies itself as a medical device and ornament, as well whose goal is to glorify the whole of silhouette,” says Gerasymchuk in a statement about the project.
