Embrace jewellery for elbows, knees and hair with this radical Hungarian designer

16 April 2018

Hungarian artist Dóra Rea Kövér takes jewellery design beyond rings and necklaces. Her projects seek to decorate parts of the body which have long been neglected in Western culture: knees, elbows and head pieces.

Kövér works her materials to make each piece as lightweight as possible, using plastic and aluminium. The goal is to make unique, show-stopping jewellery that “still feels [as if it was] always there, like the bones in our bodies.”
