In the subject of my work, broken symbolism reflects a deteriorated futuristic society where all secrets to the alchemical Magnum Opus have been discovered. One can simply turn lead into gold with a mere algorithm and turn a batch of Elixir of Life. As a result, base metals have all been transformed into silver and gold creating a society uninhibited for their lust of metal that shines as bright as the sun. Any preciousness in the life of material has rendered it meaningless with its abundance and relative inutility. All this leading to the beautiful demise of a world where the people should have known better: All that glitters is not gold. What I create are the artifacts that were left behind, forlorn and deteriorated.
Bangle made from 14 gauge sterling silver wire. High polish finish. Inside dimension 2.75".
This Drift bangle has a little more dimension than the Flat Atlas with arcs on multiple dimensions. Still an easy to wear bangle that does not feel bulky around the wrist.
Iron Cat Jupiter gets its name from the type of stone called Tiger Iron. Its a beautiful polished stone with different gradients of black swirled with deep reds and the golden tones that flash in the light that is reminiscent of tiger's eye. As a whole, the stone looks like the patterns seen on the surface of the planet Jupiter.
The necklace itself is made from square sterling silver sire that has been individually soldered. Sections of it are oxidized while other areas are left with a matte silver finish.
The unique clasp on the back closes through an opening and lock in place with a pick on a delicate hand made chain.
Dimensions: 5" x 4.25"
Key Port hoop earrings are made from 18 gauge sterling silver that has an oxidized portion. Earring is put in through open end.
Things to note: Most earring gauges go from 22-18, with 18 being on the larger end. It's usually not an issue with posts but may be a bit difficult for some to weave this distance through an earring hole.
Oxidized Devil Moon hair pick is made from 12 gauge sterling silver that has been forged down to 2 points. These work perfectly to hold up hair in a french twist!
Inspired by the quote from Nietzsche:
"Whoever fights monsters should see to it that in the process he does not become a monster. And when you look long into an abyss, the abyss also looks into you."
This philosophical choker is made from sterling silver wire with hand made chain. Eye at center is made from 14k gold and stands out next to the rest of the oxidized eyes. The clasp is a simple hook and "eye" that connects on the side instead of the back, leaving a clean, polished, lonely, but ever watchful, eye on the back of the neck!
