Intro
Horny series consists of pendants showing us the broad variation of something that is close to us all. As a mediator, the horn is dealing with the issues that come along with gender and going deeper into the co-existence of masculinity and jewellery. What we are and how we are seen cannot be fitted to only one box but several. These horns are showing it all, from wonky to rock solid, from organic to industrial. The concept of a horn is questioned discreetly with strength, with a golden carabiner holding them all together. / Jenni Sokura, lecturer
