"The KR-36 battery cuff is part of the Alliage -Cu29Zn30 collection: an ideal projection of my invincible self, translated into a jewelry collection. Based on the concept of trans-humanism, I have transcended beyond my human nature and became a semi-cyborg.
Each accessory of the collection represents a super-power of "my future self." All the pieces are shaped using a metal lathe, which gives the brass an industrial look. KR-36 refers to Kryton, a chemical element with the symbol Kr and atomic number 36. It is a colorless, odorless, tasteless noble gas that occurs in trace amounts in the atmosphere and is often used with other rare gases in fluorescent lamps.
The central piece of this bracelet is sculpted on a metal lathe where material is taken out to create this transistor like piece. It is then soldered to a cuff made out of wire." — Loan Favan

INSTRUCTIONS

The KR-36 battery cuff is a conceptual accessory piece and therefore is not meant to adapt to all bodies, to be practical nor to be worn everyday.
For good care of the product, avoid contact with water, source of strong heat, colors and pigments of any kind. Store in its original packaging or enclosed space/bags for better preservation. Note that the metal may oxydize overtime, polishing cloth could be used to soften this effect.


LOAN FAVAN

Launched in 2018, Naula is a raw an minimalist handcrafted jewelry line by Loan Favan. Loan is from New Caledonia, a French island located in the Pacific Ocean. She studied at the Design Academy of Eindhoven, Netherlands in the department « Man and Identity ». During those years she develops a sensibility for craft and textures. In her vision it is important to keep an authentic message of her heritage, and it goes with preserving the essence of her materials. She explores the world of textiles in search of textures that would embody her stories and stumbles across the metal world. Loan immediately loves the refined qualities of the material and starts some goldsmith courses next to her studies.
