"Inspired by parasites which slip beneath the skin" - finger ring made from wire and porcelain, by Kathy Ludwig

With her highly conceptual graduation project the German born and Eindhoven based designer Kathy Ludwig blends decorative and pleasant aspects of classical jewellery with emotional, even nauseous, perceptions towards parasitic insects, funguses etc. Her organic body decorations are now in production by the Paris based Galerie BSL in a limited edition of 8.

“‘Hosting Parasites’ consists of three smoked oak cabinets of curiosities. Each of these presentation cases contains latex, ivory, fabric, silver and porcelain objects for experimenting with, which inhabit the user’s body/support, leaving behind its imprint or fusing with it.”
