Venezia: Porta D’oriente

The pendant is transformed from a 17th-century decoration into a piece of jewellery dedicated to Venice and Japan. The piece represents a hypothetical meeting of two cultures told through the elements of the sea - a desire for discovery and the unknown, the ship - representing the voyage, the ventaglio - an element common to the two cultures, the chrysanthemum (kiku) - a symbol of immortality, and the portal (tori) - a symbol of purification.
