Elaine Young & DNA Jewellery!!

I met Elaine Young on Friday February 5 2010 for a chat & discovered a lot about this fascinating lady with a fascinating design concept. Inspired by biotechnology Elaine designs “things” (as she puts it) but with a very interesting back story – bags & accessories with microscopic images, jewellery with your DNA (!!) & more.
You can discover Elaine’s designs for yourself at the Mori Art Museum store on the 52nd floor of Roppongi Hills, Tokyo & at the website www.LAB-yrinth.net

After the interview Elaine took my DNA sample to be inserted into a piece of jewellery which I’ll receive later – the story shall continue..
