Jewellery To Create (Fashion) Statements Of A Different Kind

The series of mechanical jewellery by artist/designer Jennifer Crupi encourages gesture. Various iterations of the concept force an action – such as the ‘power gesture’ which requires the user to assume the authoritative ‘steepled fingers’, or the ‘leg bouncer (stress expresser)’ which focuses on the anxious tick. The pieces amplify habits and positions we engage in daily through the language of design, with striking results that reference prosthetic and mechanics.

Could these beautiful, sculptural pieces become future fashion statements of a different kind; jewellery worn to ‘curate’ gestures and social mores during important business, cross-cultural or socially awkward scenarios for example, where ‘saying’ the right thing, including through body language, would be critical?
