Called Gravity Pearl, magnets inside the artificial pearls allow them to transform into different kinds of jewellery, including earrings, brooches, rings and bracelets.
The pearls can be formed into clusters to create different variations of jewellery items.
The pieces are produced in collaboration with manufacturers HK.
Here's some more information from the designer:
HK Gravity Pearl
Beyond Acrual Pearl
In Japanese, the character for "izumi" (fountain) is a hybrid of the two characters for "white" and "water". The artificial pearls produced by HK (calls 'HAKU')'s artisans in Izumi are akin to shining crystals emerging from white water.
Being first to master the production of artificial pearls in Japan, Izumi artisans have a long-standing inherited and traditional know-how passed on from generation to generation.
For the exhibition, HK developed "Gravity pearls" in collaboration with designer NOSIGNER.
They are magnetic pearls that attract one another, and transform to ring, necklace, earing, broach,etc.
HK introduce this new and enticing breed of pearls, which can cluster like bubbles.
