Iris’s graduate collection is inspired by her childhood experience of collecting glass marbles from Ramune.

        From a child’s perspective, marbles in bottles are precious gems trapped in treasure boxes; play park facilities are castles , war ships, battle grounds.  Iris discovered some similarities between these two things. Thus, she decided to develop her work combining the trapped treasure idea with the elements picked from play park facilities. She intended to make a series of jewellery that reminds people of their lovely childhood and could accompany adults like herself through any future challenges. 

       The structures and techniques Iris developed allows a series of colourful balls to move and rotate freely without escaping from the pieces. She hopes the cheerful bright colour palette and the satisfying movement of the jewellery could help relieving pressure and bring peace to wearers.
