Rock It! Conor Joseph Oricula Ear Piece

Wednesday, 23 August 2017



 Dark and obscure, Second Skin is a raw collection laid bare. Paying homage to the human body, it reveres the often-uncelebrated imperfections of the ultra delicate skin such as wrinkles, freckles and scars, provoking feelings of intimacy and exposure. In a society where we strive for unrealistic and unattainable goal of perfection, it is now a norm to camouflage so-called 'flaws' with strategically placed clothing, contouring makeup, identikit cosmetic surgery and, in the social media era, photoshop and filter apps. 

One of my favourite pieces from Second Skin is the Oricula earplug which fits perfectly inside the inner ear as well as the outer ear, like a second protective shell. It is an aesthetically sleek and unique ear piece that creates a sense of comfort between the wearer and the jewellery, symbolically blocking out criticism, judgement and unwanted opinion on our appearances, where we can finally be comfortable in our own skin and embrace our individuality and imperfections, if only temporarily.
