Jewelry designer Christiaan Lebens was inspired by the aging and weathering of skin, and created a collection of jewelry called 'Ode to Imperfection.' Hoping to inspire people to embrace the beauty of aging, Lebens turned the imperfections of the human body into items that are unique and should be treasured.

The Ode to Imperfection pieces are made of various precious metals, with each piece reflecting the naturalness of the "imperfect" human body. While the jewelry itself is quite original and may take some getting used to, the concept of embracing the imperfections of the human body and making it something beautiful is inspiring.
