Material: Brass + Silver plated
Model: Hairpin
Size: One Size
Collection: NGEI

The HNADA hairpin is part of the NGEI collection, inspired by the Kanak artefacts from New Caledonia, a small French island located in the Pacific. The concept of NGEI is to juxtapose the ancient artefacts next to their futuristic version and thus re-question the mutation/adaptation of customs. The research process behind the project has also been a way to come back to my roots, and re question the impacts of colonization on education and identity.
Each object contains specific references taken from traveler’s discovery diaries and traditional legends. The pieces then become much more than simple jewelry, they become futuristic artefacts; « charged with symbols that convey our past values and identities into the future. »

The HNADA hairpin is inspired by the the "flèches faîtières"(arrow sculptures) of New Caledonia; wooden sculptures standing on top of the huts of the tribal chiefs. We believe that they are a portal to the other world and can guide our spirits. HNADA means "first" in Kanak dialect (New Caledonia). A reminder of what motivates me to create, my island.

The HNADA hairpin, crafted from sterling silver, measures 16.5cm in length, with a pendant that is 5mm thick and 3cm wide. This unique hairpin allows you to adorn your hair with traditional symbols of New Caledonia, offering a distinctive and culturally inspired addition to your hairstyle.
