Shimenawa are the twisted ropes used to demarcate sacred spaces in Shintoism. May these earrings protect and celebrate the places you inhabit, and ward off that which does not honour you.
The collection celebrates the regenerative forces of the cycles of rebirth. Like the sesen, the lotus flower depicted in ancient Egyptian artworks, we too can emerge at daybreak wading through the mud and water to greet the sun. Silhouettes are sculptural, monolithic and timeless. The palette and materials are elemental and primordial. Each piece is talismanic, intentioned to protect the wearer and ward off negative forces during these transitional times. In Nascent, ancient wisdom greets the temporal with the sage of the eternal.
Shaped rope earrings, with knot detail, custom brass finishes and titanium pin. Jewellers brass is composed of Copper and Zinc.
