Human Ivory

Door: Lucie Majerus

“Human Ivory” suggests to cherish our own “Material” instead of other species teeth and reconsider conventional preciousness. What if we mine our own ivory and turn it into pearls? proposes an egalitarian jewellery collection, where the body is being adorned by it’s own gem, polished from recognizable teeth into an abstract but familiar pearl shape. By the careful transformation of smoothening of the tooth, a possible disgust association of a human tooth evolves into attraction and beauty.

Over Lucie Majerus

Design Academy Eindhoven

As a designer, I like to question and make people question the ordinary, trigger their imagination and playfulness and make them smile for a moment. I like to look into the past to understand how things are today to be able to imagine the future. My interests lie in conceptual thinking, our senses, experiences and memories, social cohesion and material experiments. I use multi-disciplinary ways in my work ranging from food, textiles, colours, illustration and jewellery.

I passed three interesting days during the Masterclasses and as a result I got some food for though about how I can proceed with my project Human Ivory, which is about turning lost human teeth in very personal jewellery.
Furthermore, I got some insights about business and marketing aspects of the project and further ideas about how I can find a more automatised way of production.

My project was also featured on Dezeen.
