Object Detail


Description
Uneven square brooch with circular porthole that has several raised edges incised with lines and pinhole dots. Here the artist is playing with elements of the body of a piece of jewellery/ or setting that holds the feature (for instance a jewel). By not including a feature, it is the artist’s intention that the setting becomes the feature. This work is part of series where the artist goes back to the basics of jewellery shapes and craft/making asking questions about what a piece of jewellery really is.
