Sterling Silver, Sea Sponge , Pearls
The Cambridge English Dictionary defines the word absorb as "to take something in, especially gradually". The earrings of the Absorb series articulate the state of the artist's mindset of absorbing altered realities, unexpected circumstances and unfamiliar ways of being. The work echoes this notion through tensions of various textures, contrasting finishes and curious details, such as a natural sea sponge that playfully highlights the theme in each piece.
Two of the pairs incorporate pearls. Pearls are created in the process of natural defence to a foreign element that gets inside the mollusk. A reminder that often a challenge leads to renewal. The Absorb series were created in response to the ever changing world of post-Covid life.
