Armor Amore is an external ribcage that both protects and shares your heart.
Our bodies work the same. Our hearts push blood through our bodies in rhythm. Our bones protect our organs, and our rib cage protects our heart. Yet in these modern tumultuous times, we have forgotten the most fundamental thing that we all share – a heart.
Armor Amore is an external ribcage that both protects and shares your heart.
Armor Amore is made of bronze, referencing ancient protective armor. Seven rose quartz stones are set into the ribcage, referencing the seven chakras, or energy centers. The rose quartz represent a universal symbol of love and motherhood. The rose quartz stones pulse with the wearer’s heartbeat, illuminating the heart rhythms of the wearer, all the while allowing the wearer to feel safe and protected.​​​​​​​
The ribcage is made out of Bronze sheet and wire, hammered by hand, and then riveted together with over 100 rivets. Behind the set stones are LED lights responding to a heartbeat sensor placed on the wearer. The electronics run off of an Arduino micro controller.
