Anaïs Paulard's art jewelry are truly intriguing pieces, though not for neat freaks. Her unusual accessories have designs that leave traces of the wearer in their wake. She designed a set of wedding rings that leak powder to remind newlyweds of the commitment they have made to one another.
Similarly, 'Won't Hug Me Twice?' is powder-filled balloon brooch that explodes upon contact with another person. Paulard sums up this concept of contagious happiness with a line from American Beauty: "My heart fills up like a balloon that’s about to burst.” These designs are expressive, conveying moments that deserve to be shared and committed to memory and do so by leaving a physical substance behind them.
Although artful, these avant-garde jewelry pieces might not be ideal for everyday wear, especially around unsuspecting people.
