Nostalgia

Nostalgia is rhombic, set with black diamonds.Its shape combined with the stones set sideways,was inspired by two people's longing to meet again. Their connection is inimitable and this is described on its base;although they travel to different directions hoping to meet again, they fail to do so. The theme, with the stones looking sideways, shows exactly the pain caused by this longing of return; eventually it transfigures into hope. The juxtaposition emphasizes the true nature of love as it is manifested through time and space.

Water splash

Regarding the perfect shape of the human body, creating something to enhance this greatness is actually difficult. Hence, returning to the natural forms and applying Biomorphism was my solution to design something as beautiful as the shape of human body.

The pearl which is located on the backward fixed the earring to the auricle. Since the earring is pinless, it can also be used by women who have no pinhole. It is designed for one ear use and can be put on by a simple maneuver.

Tetrahedron

The objective of this design was to integrate the sharp lines of the tetrahedron form to the organic shape of the human finger while still retaining the essence of this geometric shape. This was achieved by creating a complex non-linear geometry that remains simple in appearance. This sharpness was extrapolated by making most complimentary elements of the ring triangular in section, including the green tourmaline at its centre. The result is a visually striking yet ergonomic ring.
