All pieces of horn have their unique colors and patterns. With inspiration in the structure of grass, I developed a new technique where the horn is heat bended around the metal. In that way the two materials are combined in a natural way without glue. The silver thread going through the brooch on the front continues in one line and becomes the back mechanism. That means each material can be taken apart again and reused. Today most of the horn is a byproduct of the meat production, which is burned together with other leftover materials. Therefore I wanted to discuss the definition of waste and thereby investigate how to focus on unused ressources by making jewellery out of a waste material.
