Staring Back at Me is all about the intimate interaction between the jewel and the person wearing it. Presenting that perspective-altering moment in which you’re not sure who’s looking at whom.
The pieces within the collection are the result of both an intuitive mind and skillful crafts. Edith van Kan, the designer behind Staring Back At Me, loves pairing shapes, colours and materials to create captivating compositions: offering a playful addition to everything you’re already wearing.
The designer about her work:
“I look at things in a playful way and I have great passion for experimenting with shapes, colours and materials. My work usually derives from intuition. An idea pops up in my head and I just can’t wait to start working on it. Every day objects and even craftsmanship long forgotten can be an inspiration for my handmade statement wearable designs.”
