Brooch.
Stainless steel, latex, yarn, syringes.

"In his project ‘Scar(r)ed’, Juan Harnie investigates how medical materials, deformities and scar tissue can be used in jewellery even though many people associate them with negative experiences and fear. As an outcome of this research he created a collection of brooches made of latex and a variety of medical materials such as syringes and stainless steel basins. The pieces will change and decay in time. This unusual choice of materials and the technique of surgical stitching create very decorative, yet uncanny pieces."
