Opticor Series / Contemporary Jewellery

Opticor Series
Opticor Series

According to the Chinese Art of “Face Reading”, different colours that appear on the human head provide different hints about health and fortune. In general, bright colours on the face and neck are fortunate colours. The traditional sense of beauty has been transformed into the modern sense of beauty, which is expressed in the new ornament series.
Optical Ornament Series is a set of ‘four-dimensional’ ornaments that cast different colours of light onto their wearer’s face by means of the principle of light reflection. This generates various forms and intensities of light in response to movements of the head or body and to changes of light.
