Wood, stainless steel, silver, cold enamel, thread, beads
The work "Silly Sheriff’s Office" is a part of small series "Silly Village" and it's a set of huge interactive earrings with ball bearing rotating parts that presents a series of portraits of people wanted for silly crimes. Mrs. Butts is wanted for eating the seed corn; Mr. Hickinbottom - for sawing off the bough he was sitting on; and finally Mr. Fartz Jr. is wanted for building a fire under himself. The earrings cre created from plywood, stainless steel, silver, cold enamel, beads and thread. The earrings are very heavy, so it's not an object for everyday wear - more for the brief but unforgettable appearance on some free-spirit event.
