Oval Cornelian Lense Earrings
The cornelian lenses are the filter to the a memory where an oval cut gem surrounded by small stones is falling and braking. The two earrings are capturing the moment in two different images. On top of the beautiful shades of orange of the cornelian there are 3 and 4 silver rivets, that dialogue with the small gems cut in the silver in the back.
Each earring measure 40x30mm

My aim for the Colours Lenses collection was to produce a a body of work that investigates how the perception of events and objects becomes distorted in the construction of memory and the possibility that the image itself may undergo a modification subsequent to its initial conception.
The collection is marked by the prominent use of transparent stones, as they symbolise the filters that memories place on our perception of events. Just as memories can sometimes distort and reinterpret experiences, these transparent stones are used as lens for memory which natural inclusion and colour nuances transform the image underneath. Some of the stones are revealing the cut out shape, in the metal, of stones no longer wearable or present. Other, through engraving or cut out, rebuild a specific piece of jewellery through a fragment of it in order to capture the moment of their breaking or becoming unwearable and at the same time make it wearable again in order to creates new narratives.
