Memory, mourning, and mortaliy

 

Locket / 2015

Gold-pated brass, resin, and fresh water pearls

 

The pieces reference the realisation of one’s own mortality and the desire to be remembered after passing. Inspired by Victorian mourning jewellery in which tokens of loved ones were kept, by casting own fingers, making a permanent trace of own physicality. The desire for eternal memory is symbolised via the circularity of the snake, whilst the pearl represents tears spilt in sadness.
