“The intention is then to turn the distasteful into the desirable, to switch the response from rejection to attraction.”

The Filigree Cervical Collar® is a human sized and wearable neck/chest brace that follows the concept of body restriction pieces based on prosthetics and orthotics, presented in “Medically Prescribed Jewellery®”. It is made in 18k gold plated silver handmade Portuguese filigree. It fulfills its medical function completely. Having as a starting point the exploration of a merger between anatomy, medicine and jewellery, “Medically Prescribed Jewellery®” focuses on the combined use of actual surgery tools and their replicas in order to create jewellery pieces that are intimately related to the human body, without ever being dissociated from their original function. The intention is then to turn the distasteful into the desirable, to switch the response from rejection to attraction.
