Mnemosyne’s Scent: Accessories (Pair Work)

Jia Ying | Jia Jun

So Jia Ying and me got paired up to create  a set of accessories based on our pleasant/unpleasant scents. Both of our scents are really far apart and after much consideration, we came up with a common scent where we both have common interest in, which is Mala. To tie back to the theme, we got design inspirations from the ancient china accessories.

Some of the challenges we faced is shaping, twisting the wood into the curvy shape. Initially we wanted to swirl the wood as much as we can but the wood is extremely thin therefore it is prone to breaking very easily. But overall it was a fun experience working as a team.
