The HOPE jewellery designs for the MAKECanada Design Challenge are a response to the mental health issues caused by the pandemic, social inequalities, and the environmental crisis. Depression and anxiety are among the most common types of mental disorders in Canada and have been shown to significantly impact the daily lives of those affected. By remembering the word “HOPE” and wearing this positive symbol for all to see, we want to spread a good vibe of energy, optimism, and healing.
The HOPE jewellery designs are produced through two different methods and materials. The first uses the cutting-edge 3D-printing process of laser sintering steel with a durable blackened finish resulting in an affordable fashion accessory. The second uses the traditional jewellery process of lost-wax-casting in sterling silver resulting in a more precious, luxury jewellery product. All HOPE jewellery designs come on leather cords that can easily be adjusted to any length.
