Eve Vautier / Hibiki

We had Memorings on Wednesday — today, Memory Rings. I'll let French lacquer designer Eve Vautier explain her "Reminiscence" series herself:

Reminiscence represents a radical re-interpretation of lacquer exploring its poetic possibilities for contemporary jewellery.... [T]he craft of lacquer is slowly disappearing due to dramatic life style changes and shifts in its traditional clientele. The Reminiscence project researches the 'memory' of lacquer and the multiple layers of culture and history embedded within it, to generate new identities in the realm of jewellery. The collection uses the concepts of fossils, encapsulation and erosion to evoke the memory of lacquer on both a physical and abstract level offering wearable artefacts that are unfamiliar yet desirable.
