Playful jewellery for the inner world
Weimin realizes that jewellery can be a special bridge between our physical bodies and our mental selves. Drawing on her long-standing interest in healing, her graduation work, Playful jewellery for the inner world, is a series of wearable jewellery pieces that encourage the wearer to move their body by inviting them to play. The movements prompted by these pieces have been selected based on research into body awareness therapy, which aims to heal one's ‘inner world’ by strengthening their awareness of their physical body. There are two main aspects to these pieces: on the one hand, their wearability, and on the other, their playful ‘purpose’.
