Eric Klarenbeek is a designer of the unusual. But after stumbling upon his eyeball jewelry, we think that’s quite an understatement.
The idea is to place the decorated contact lenses in your eyes, and then allow the small jewels to dangle onto your cheeks.
A contact lens becomes jewelry, such as spectacles ever became a representation of our identity. Our fear for imperfectness makes us modify our surrounding and being, striving for virtual perfection. Not being someone we should be, but someone we could be. Aesthetics are more and more based on Photoshop’s capabilities and slightly becomes the norm for plastic surgery, instead of nature. Eye jewelry shows our scientific capabilities while showing the beauty of imperfection.
