Queer Beard (2019)
Gold plated silver, cold enamel, crystal, artificial gemstones
Inspired by visual symbols used in gender equality campaign movements, I start this project of LGBTQ rights jewellery intending to reflect the spirit of mutual respect, gender proudness, and support for equality. Particularly I used LGBTQ symbols to mimic facial hairs/braids in this collection, and hopefully, it will work as a humorous approach challenging rigid recognition of genders or gender stenotypes. The purpose of my design is to enable people who share the same beliefs in supporting LGBT rights campaigns can make a clear, delightful yet elegant voice by wearing my jewellery.
