Mourning might be experienced not only after a death of people dear to us. It is also connected to other types of loss: breakups, divorces or dramatic changes of the environment we live in. POPIO is an experimental investigation aimed to explore the emotional value which can be carried by an object. The pieces are made of material based on ashes collected from burnt memorabilia (journals, photographs, letters or documents) related to the person or place which one have lost. The story carried by the jewelry is obvious to its wearer, but not to people from the outside world whom we might not like to share our grief with.
