Regardless of how minimal or delicate, to wear a piece of jewellery is to add a foreign object to your body. An oyster forms layers around an object that eventually becomes a pearl, and we, too, adapt to the initial discomfort of jewellery being worn. Jewellery slowly becomes a part of you, and a time comes when you feel uneasy stepping out of your home without it. We know there’s nothing logical about attaching an object onto your body, but we also know that seemingly meaningless detours can bring us joy.
