…. ou, comme le dit si bien Monika Brugger : « bijou dématérialisé en expérience de lumière »
matériau : lumière (« light » en anglais), légéreté (« light » en anglais …), fée électricité ….
« Jewelry that explores the lucent qualities of materials. Mostly using acrylics – or perspex, plexiglass or lucite, names depending on the manufacturers – experiments are made using neon colors and transparencies which are very adequate mediums to conduct light but as well by including electrical components that add to the already quite extraordinary forms the conceptual element of thinking jewellery as devices. « (popupuau)

LED Jewellery designed by Dian Luo, a Jewellery Graduate at Central Saint Martins (UK) 2013
Dian Luo, a Chinese jewellery designer based in London. Using the light as the design source, she transforms it from abstractive element into a multiplicity of geometric jewellery piece that plays with shadow & movement.
« Why have you choose plastic to make your jewellery? Yoolhee Ko: Because of my concept. I would like to transfer colour to my jewels and my jewels are quite big so I have to use more light weight materials… I chose plastic. Prisms have their transparency and sheerness, but at the same time when it sparkles by reflecting light, there are chromatic colours. It took me back to the visuals that are dreamy and full of fantasy. » (Dazed Digital interview)
The artist’s designs resemble a prism, which at first appears transparent and singular, but reflects chromatic colors when light shines through. By embedding her own experiences and perceptions into her designs, Ko’s pieces project new images through the act of reflection. Ko hopes her users will experience an equally reflective form of catharsis when they wear her designs

Aurora – Second Skin by Lighting - by Kyeok Kim
« Aurora creates patterns of light on the body as ornamentation, extending the ornamented space around the body and restyling its decorative silhouette by motion. Aurora highlights the relationship between different pieces of jewellery, by its nature the pieces interact with the another. To operate the decorative light, one must gently move the ring (containing a magnet) towards the main jewellery piece. »
