Material: Sterling Silver / Gold plated 14k
Model: Single Earring
Size: One Size
The HNADA earring is part of the NGEI collection, inspired by the Kanak artifacts from New Caledonia, a small French island located in the Pacific. The concept of NGEI is to juxtapose the ancient artefacts next to their futuristic version and thus re-question the mutation/adaptation of customs. The research process behind the project has also been a way to come back to my roots, and re question the impacts of colonization on education and identity.
Each object contains specific references taken from travellers’ discovery diaries and traditional legends. The pieces then become much more than simple jewelry, they become futuristic artefacts; « charged with symbols that convey our past values and identities into the future. »
This earring is inspired by the the flèches faîtières of New Caledonia (arrow sculptures), wooden sculptures standing on top of the huts cases of the tribes chiefs. We believe that they are a portal to the other world and can guide our spirits. HNADA means "first" in Kanak dialect (New Caledonia). A reminder of what motivates me to create, my island.
HNADA is sold as a single earring and has two models: one where the pendant is attached to a snake chain (4cm) and another where the pendant lays on a 12mm silver hoop. The pendant is 2,5cm (long), 1 cm large and 3mm thick.
For the gold plated option we use 14k gold plate.
