Using pieces of body to adorn other bodies helps us appreciate the joy that comes from the acceptance of our 'Thingness', as the '70s contemporary artist Paul Thek defined it, influenced by his visit to the Capuchin Catacombs in Palermo.
The Thingness collection is inspired to the artist's work and features eyes, boobies, teeth and legs. The Thingness collection is deadly serious but looks fun.
This is the Eyes French Barrette, an unusual accessory for your everyday look, or wherever you need an extra eye.
These are my deep brown eyes, I’m spreading them everywhere, keeping an eye on you. As the eyes of ancient dolls, these eyes are handmade out of glass, making each of them slightly different.
Murano Glass has an incredible variety of colours, but it was not realistic and lively enough. I made rods of glass contaminated with other materials, to create every time a unique pattern.

The disembodied body parts of the Thingness Collection are slightly creepy but kind of kitschy and simply adorable.
Every single bead is handmade by Cosima in her studio in Venice.
