The HNADA necklace is part of the NGEI collection, inspired by the Kanak artifacts 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 travellers’ 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. »
This necklace is inspired by the the flèches faîtières of New Caledonia (arrow sculptures), wooden sculptures standing on top of the hut of the tribes chief. 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.
HNADA is a necklace composed of a pendant of 5cm and a chain of 68cm.
For the gold plated option we use 14k gold plate.
