Väärtus is about value and pride. Arthritis is a problem occurring with our aging population; the need for medical aids to perform everyday tasks is apparent. Current assistive devices are clumsy, undependable, impermanent, poorly made, unhelpful and ugly. People who require aids don’t want to use them. Vaartus is the opportunity to bridge the gap between what is currently available and the demand set out by a modern aging audience seeking value and independence.
The double ring is for any writing/ painting/ drawing/ crafting device in a normal cylindrical size. It can be used at 90 or 45 degrees and either between two fingers or thumb and forefingers, dependant on preference.
My evaluation of success is how valuable my users find my project. Each piece has been thoughtfully designed to benefit the user and bring value and independence to their lives.
Väärtus is assistive jewellery that empowers women with arthritis
