Memories × Consorzio Vera PelleMaking this collection has been inspired by the time, history and nature of the vegetable tanned leather. In my research I was inspired by a quote saying: “My skin tells the story of my life because i’m the result of what I have lived”. This led me to use the vegetable tanned leather as a canvas for showing a personal history through jewelry. Inspired by the tradition of the locket I developed a technique where I could transfer photographs on the leather. This resulted in a collection of memories as pendants that carries a personal history close to the body. This was a collection made for Conzorzio Vera Pelle as a part of their Craft the Leather exhibition.
