Eye Jewellery by Eric Klarenbeek

Apart from surgery, this is probably as close as we can get design to the eye. After five years of development, one of the boldest ideas in jewellery design is now undergoing tests and certification - a contact lens that becomes jewellery!

"Eye Jewellery is a concept by Dutch designer Eric Klarenbeek, who explores the potential of jewellery as an integral part of the human body. a combination of a pair of contact lenses and a string of tiny crystals makes a jewel that joins the movements of the eye and eyelid."

If laboratory tests are successful, we might already see Eye Jewellery in the shops within a few months.
