Interconnections n04 (Reversible)
Size: Necklace: 22"
Materials: Brass, copper, silver / Jumprings: Brass
Techniques: Marriage of metals, Roller printing, Chainmaille (Japanese 12-in-2)
This reversible necklace combines marriage of metals on one side, and roll mill printing on the other side.
- Wear it with the marriage of metals showing to tell the world: I am a unique individual. Yet, together, we are greater than the sum of the parts. We may be different, but together, we form an integrated tapestry.
- Wear it with the rolled print design showing to reflect on the footprints you are leaving during your passage on this earth, large and small, some deeper than others.
I used Japanese 12-in-2 chainmaille to connect the pieces to reflect the open design of the marriage of metals side. I like this weave because to me, each opening is a window to the world. We may look at the world through different windows and lenses, yet we are all looking to the same form, the same creation.
Brass is known for its healing properties: it is believed to boost the immune system and to give courage. Similarly, copper and silver are also believed to be healing metals. Additionally, copper is also known as the lucky metal.
This is a one-of-a-kind piece. We do welcome special orders based on this design.
