I am a contemporary jewellery artist with a keen interest in conveying my unique perspective on various social phenomena through my jewellery pieces. This series encompasses lipsticks, crowns, female symbols, and explores the contrasts between illusion and reality.

In one of my videos, I document the destruction of elaborate lipstick crowns, aiming to expose the illusions perpetuated by consumerism. This prompts me to question the marketing strategies surrounding female empowerment in the makeup industry. I extract lipstick, a product often used to define women, and repurpose it into a material for my empowering pieces. I believe that lipstick should not dictate a woman's identity; instead, women should reclaim the power to define themselves.

Amidst the chaotic vandalism, I earnestly proclaim, 'Welcome to the real world!' I highlight the necessity for women to pursue genuine rights rather than relying on false empowerment through makeup.
