Kim’s Earrings

Statement: A pair of earrings commissioned in which I had free reign to create something that Kim would be wearing for the opening reception of her solo exhibition at Blood, Breath, Skin, and Dust . Inspired by the organic forms in her Blood Portrait series, our shared love for sculpture, and taking into account colours that would look good with her skin tone, I did multiple water castings of silver with trace amounts of brass and copper. I then organized and designed these pieces based on the metal forms produced, drilled into, rivited, and laser welded them together through a series of various loops.
Two pairs ended up being created- one sculptural which was worn to the opening, and one a bit more dainty/for every-day wear.

Materials: water cast silver/copper/brass alloys, silver threaded earring backs
