Finalist: Agnes Olivia
Design concept: Duo Looks Pearl Ear Cuff
Agnes designed an ear cuff with two looks, where she used two kinds of closure that creates two different styles. The first one is elegant, where she uses the cup post back closure. The second one is bold and stylish, the kind of ear cuff to wear for parties at night, where she uses a screwball type of closure, connected with a dangling chain with a pearl at the bottom end. The ear cuff is made of flexible sterling silver that can be adjusted to the ear shape of the wearer and is gilded with rose gold colour.
Agnes understands that pearls have a classy image and that each pearl is unique. She also knows that a good quality pearl requires a thorough handling, which makes it a luxury item. “With the right combination, a piece of jewellery can give a strong or different impact and image to someone’s look. Sometimes it can even voice a fashion statement,” she says via a written interview with Indonesia Design. “And through this competition, I got to learn more about the types of pearls from the rich Indonesian oceans,” she adds.
