Soothing Cocoons

I have been exploring how jewellery can help us to induce sleep. Sleep is so crucial to each of us, but there are significant numbers of people suffering from insomnia: they live a fast-paced life and do not have the time to relax. My investigation was prompted by my own experience of insomnia and, therefore, I would like to help and soothe insomniacs through my work, combining appearance, tactility and function in my works.

These pieces are inspired by cocoons and can be worn in a variety of ways. Wearers can put small objects, given to them by their cherished people, inside the cocoons, using them as talismanic jewellery to gain the courage to fight with negative emotions in order to promote sleep.

Materials: wool, silk, pearl, faux fur, cotton thread
