The Found Father.
The giant jewellery was made to celebrate fatherhood. It is playful and references the vulnerability felt by new fathers. The ceramic pendant jewellery inspired by the Mexican Bola necklace, rattles and the mother wears it on a long chain during pregnancy. The rattle can later be worn by either parent to soothe the infant as the sound will be as familiar as their mother’s heartbeat. The findings are from men’s vintage pocket watches, in recognition of all the fathers that have gone before us.
