My idea for Valentine’s jewellery (so far!):
So eggs and valentines?!
Chloe, what are you doing?!
Well, i got thinking about packaging that is also part of the jewellery that is a little bit different from the norm. Something to symbolize a relationship. Something that was neither overtly valentine nor anti-valentine and just captured part of the need for humans to love each other and show that love in the form of a token.
So…… eggs?…. okay, wait a minute! Listen to my logic.
The relationship of two people is encompassed by the use of natural eggshells. A thin, feeble layer shelters the token inside. Once the shell is thrown away the physical memory inside remains.
See, eggs on Valentine’s Day all makes sense!
Now on to some real smashing fun!
As well as the eggs containing my love tokens, i want there to be more drama involved when the egg cracks. So, i’ve been testing out materials that will burst from the egg and stain the wearer. In relationships there are many bursts of emotions hidden within the cracks, so why not express this with blood exploding from the heart… or red paint exploding from my eggshell?
