Dis-ease is a Holistic medicine term for an ailment. Being in a state of Dis-ease rather than having a disease allows one to not become consumed by illness. We all have Dis-eases and imperfections. By revealing them we can begin to overcome them. These tumor-like brooches represent any imperfections or Dis-eases the wearer may have. The brooches are directly connected to the body by a silk tail. The tail is sewn to the “tumor” and then slid in between the body’s natural crevices, making the body the brooch’s mechanism, as well as making the “tumor” part of the body.
