Through a collection of jewellery made with human hair, ‘Vestige’ employs various techniques to reflect the unique identities of individuals and challenge the conventional perception of hair as a mere disposable material. The author believes that hair is a vestige, a trace, and a memory, and she aims to extend its deep emotional, symbolic and aesthetic value not only when connected to our bodies but also after it has been separated from them.

This project offers a transformative experience, engaging participants with the inherent beauty and meaning of their own hair and encouraging a reassessment of its role in personal and collective identity. Those who wear a ‘Vestige’ jewel will carry a story and have the opportunity to construct themselves through this dialogue.
