Because why not? Who knows when you’ll have to charge a mobile device alone in the woods WITH JUST YOUR BLOOD? Israeli jewelry designer Naomi Kizhner has designed jewelry pieces that are inserted into the wearer’s veins, then harnesses the kinetic power from the body’s involuntary movements to produce electricity. “I approach the human body as a resource,” she says. “There are lots of developments of renewable energy sources, but the human body is a natural resource for energy that is constantly renewed, as long as we are alive.”
These gorgeous pieces do JUST THAT.
The collection, named ‘Energy Addicts’, features invasive pieces of gold jewelry that have golden spikes at each end, which are inserted into the wearer’s veins in two places. The continuous flow of blood turns the golden wheel inside the design, eventually creating sufficient kinetic energy to produce electricity that is sufficient to light up an LED and soon maybe even mobile devices.
Naomi created the pieces as a part of her graduation project at Jerusalem’s Hadassah College.
The collection consists of three pieces – the Blood Bridge, the Blinker, and the E-Pulse Conductor. The Blood Bridge is inserted on the veins of the lower arm, while the Blinker fits on the bridge of the nose, harnessing the energy created while blinking. Each time the wearer blinks, there is an increased flow of blood to the area around the eyes and the statement jewelry collects that energy. The E-pulse Connector fits on the upper back, collecting energy from the spinal cord nerves.
LOVE IT. GET ME ONE OF EACH.
