Hoda (M) Ear Cuff Silver
The HODA (M) earcuff is part of the NGEI collection, inspired by the Kanak artefacts 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. »
The HODA (M) earcuff is inspired by the the 'Engraved bamboos' of New Caledonia, which depicted everyday scenes of Kanak tribes in a stylistic drawing style. HODA (M) is adorned small oblique slits, which are interpreted as a symbol for uncut grass and wild lands in the Kanak tribes. HODA means "before, long time ago" in Kanak dialect (New Caledonia).
HODA (M) earcuff is 25mm diameter and 4mm thick.
