SIMPLICITY IN DESIGN


IN SIMPLICITY WE FIND THE BEAUTY, BECAUSE THE EYE CAN REST! WHEN THE EYE IS ABLE TO REST, THE SOUL CAN REST!

Everyone mourns differently. Some will keep a loved one’s ashes in an urn. Some will use a loved one’s ashes to make a diamond. Some will even turn a loved one’s ashes into an artificial coral reef.




 



















Everyone mourns differently. Some will keep a loved one’s ashes in an urn. Some will use a loved one’s ashes to make a diamond. Some will even turn a loved one’s ashes into an artificial coral reef.
 Thanks to design student Anna Schwamborn, some will now have the option to wear a loved one’s ashes as jewelry.
Not your typical accessory, Schwamborn’s “Mourning Objects” allows a person to wear the hair and cremated ashes of the deceased in different forms of necklaces and bracelets, Deezen reports.
Schwaborn, who is currently studying at Central St. Martins in London and previously worked with Alexander McQueen and Vivienne Westwood, combines real human hair and cremated ashes mixed with black bone china to create wearable memorials.
“The objects are supposed to be worn close to the body of the mourner symbolizing a lasting physical connection between two individuals even after death,” Schwamborn told Deezen.
 While the prices of these unique trinkets have not yet been specified, Schwamborn has announced that her “Mourning Objects” come in several different designs, including a necklace, a watch chain tear catcher and a rosary.





























here is what i think:

one finds always what one wants to find,
one sees always what one wants to see,
one understands always what one think one understands,
one believes always in what we want to believe in.

life is there for us to learn to think beyond our imagination,
beyond the physical manifestation of our body,
beyond our own existence.
