Western Armenian Jewelry has always been part of the national dresses Taraz and it has been connected with the body. In the past, the chains under the face were meant to keep the chin and mouth closed. I decided to twist the idea of jewelry by also wearing the chains on my back thus having control of my voice. The piece is made with brass and I was trying to integrate this jewelry into the contemporary world.
