Functional domestic objects, such as, doorknobs, door handles and taps are something we have to touch everyday because of their functions. This collection gives a new interpretation to these objects by taking them out of the context of being on architectural bodies as functional objects to be worn as jewellery pieces on the human bodies as symbolic of inviting viewers to come closer to the wearers. The pieces are tempting for the touch by new aspects that create attractions. The materials were changed from hard to soft, and from industrial materials to natural materials. Through the working process each piece was given its own character as if they were individual persons.
