This project requested me to design wearable objects or accessories that celebrate the occasion of the feast and the identity of the host or the guests. I decided to choose HANAMI(花見)as my feast. Hanami is the Japanese traditional custom of enjoying the beauty Cherry blossoms or Ume blossoms whilst eating, drinking and singing. The shape of the necklace is inspired by the MASU(Wooden box cup) which is largely used for drinking Sake.
The white necklace is made out of the paper straws to express the delicate and lightness of the Sakura petal. And the black one is made out of coppers to represent the solidity and heaviness of branches. Therefore, you can swap the necklaces depending on your feeling!
