Book “Androgyny: Jewellery Beyond Gender” is a MA thesis research, where jewellery artist Darja Popolitova considering concept of gender as disintegration of the wholeness, that generated male and female duality. Artist’s view of androgyny is one of the most exceptional thematic representations, which she exposes in her project, presenting 13 art pieces, by using innovative technologies and hybrid materials. The idea of merging natural  and synthetic was also represented through the book design, where instead of classical binding rubber bands were used.
