This is my second piece of jewellery that has been selected for the collection,
as well as the two Saskatchewan Arts Award Prototypes I submitted and was short listed for.
"2019 Saskatchewan Arts Award" Prototype Submission
"THE SKY IS LIMITLESS" Arts Award Prototype
Polyphemus Moth Necklace
Sterling silver, anodized titanium, anodized niobium, opal, garnet, 1.7mm sterling silver snake chain, 18 inches.
I have taken this organic theme and provided it with an industrial aesthetic by creating it out of a combination of three metals, adding colour with the surface treatments of anodizing the reactive metals, titanium and niobium and oxidizing the sterling silver, giving it a richness and enhancing the textures. The metallic tones compliment the flashes of greens and reds in the opals and the cherry reds in the tiny garnets.
