The Ugly Truth About exclusive element
What if the exclusive element in a product or service is the person who is wearing it, the company that makes it, or the audience it serves? This is the question I ask myself at least once a week.
This week I was thinking about this one. You might know that I’m a big fan of the latest trend seen in wearables: the so-called “laser-etched” watch. This basically means that the watch is made of a material that has been laser-etched into it (like gold or platinum).
The question is, does it make sense to wear a watch that has been laser-etched into it? Or should I just wear a normal watch? This is the problem with wearing an item that is already etched into your body, or one that is an object of your imagination. The problem is that when you wear things too long, they can change how you think about them, and how you see them, even if you didn’t intend for that to happen.
It is worth noting that laser-etched watches are not uncommon. A famous example of this is the infamous ‘laser tag’ game where people were charged with the crime of being unable to recognize people by their laser-etched tattoos.
You might think that by wearing the same item for so long you can eventually forget you have it, but the truth is that the longer you wear something, the more you remember you have it. The same thing goes for an object that has a sentimental value, and even the smallest reminder can make you feel differently about it. If you wear something that is an object of your imagination, it will be a reminder of that object.
And we can all relate to this. The only difference between wearing a necklace and wearing an earring is that the earring doesn’t show through your shirt or glasses. The necklace on your necklace will be visible, even if you can’t see the chain. The fact that you feel a particular emotion when you wear an item can be a good thing.
You can feel a lot of things in your life. Some of them you can feel in your body, some of them you can feel in your mind, and some of them you can feel in your soul. Whatever it is that you feel, however, a necklace or an earring can be an object of your imagination. The moment you see a piece of jewellery or a bracelet, you are likely to think it would be cool to have.
Some people take that to an extreme, or they feel that it’s not important, or if they find it cool, they don’t care. We think it’s important to feel this way because it can make for a more interesting, enjoyable feeling. In fact, the idea of feeling this way is a key part of why wearing an item of jewellery makes a person feel good. It lets you see and feel things more intensely.
If you have a collection of jewellery then this feeling is something you can consciously control. Because you’re not thinking about it, you can stop yourself from starting a fight with your partner or getting angry at them. It’s the same way with colours. You get used to a certain colour, and you don’t ever have to think about it.
