Hiding in the shadows...

Maiko Takeda is a Japanese designer who graduated from Central Saint Martins College for Art & Design. She makes beautiful jewellery, and uses shadows to create an unexpected effect when light shines through. Her work is very mysterious and full of contradictions. On her site described as this: "The collection questions whether shadows might obtain a quality in themselves and can adorn the body as jewellery. Although each piece simlply consists of minimal and geometric elements, such as various sizes of circular holes, pristine outlines and foms, when the light shines through the piece, the shadow unexpectedly appears as a photograph-like image of an organic form. The light, the shadow and the body all work together to create an installation work, in which the shadow remains secret but when revealed shows the main part of the jewellery."

I think this is a typical example of fashion meets art. These pieces are like true dream-jewellery. What's your favourite "I want it so bad but I'm probably never gonna have it"-jewellery piece?
