Precious Tear by Roos Kuipers

Precious Tear

Accessories that collect and treasure tears. The fragile glass rings are hollow, for sorrow and grief. The collected tears are kept in the ring until they evaporate, and only a salty white mist remains. The series also includes rings and necklaces with a plume of soft bamboo yarn, with which you can discretely brush away your own or another’s tears. There is a transparent glove with a thickened top to the index finger to wipe away a tear. should there be weeping, there are also luxurious pocket hand- kerchiefs, also made of bamboo yarn, which is more absorbent and softer than cotton.
