Playful Jewelry for the Inner World
'Playful Jewelry for the Inner World' is a collection of silver jewelry that invites the wearer to move meditatively. The rhythmic movements bring you closer to your inner world, make you more aware of your body and allow you to process stimuli better.
In psychology, these repetitive movements are called stimming. Stimming is mainly used in the context of stimuli processing disorders such as autism, but overstimulation is a problem for everyone. This is partly due to a substantial increase in the number of stimuli humans have to process. Our attention is constantly drawn and by now it is so valuable that it is even traded. So let's start stimming!
Wei Min Zhu is a jewelry and object designer from China. Her designs mainly focus on creating an intimate relationship between the objects in our daily lives and ourselves, especially our inner mental feeling. This summer Weimin graduated from the Gerrit Rietveld academy with Playful Jewelry for the inner world.
"The beauty of jewelry is that you wear it on your body - therefore you automatically have an intimate relationship. In my work, I use that relationship to bring people a little more happiness and joy."
