Unhinged

Price: $0.00

These pieces are designed to explore both concept and technique. The jewellery in this section is exhibition work created for specific calls for submission.

Unhinged is a piece about my experiences in Turkey while on vacation.  Amidst great beauty I experienced many disasters as a lone traveler.  At one point I felt like I was hanging on by a thread and if one more thing went wrong I would fall apart.  Unhinged is the manifestation of that feeling.  The shape is influenced by Turkish architecture and held together with a ribbon, but pull that cord and the entire piece opens up to reveal a jewel inside.

Unhinged is made from sterling silver, citrine, ribbon, and partially removed 18K gold plating.

Unhinged was created for an exhibition called Quotations held at Zilbershmuck in 2006.  I was awarded best Technical Achievement for this submission.
