Birth Life Death.
Set of three pendants with box.
18ct gold, oxidised Silver, oxidised zinc, antique mother of pearl gambling chips, Madagascan corundum, antique glass daguerreotype photograph.
Created for the show ‘Triptych, Life, Love, Death’ at La Joaillerie par Mazlo in Paris. Each pendant represents birth, life or death. At the time of making my Grandfather died, and I was pregnant with my daughter, although I had not yet told him.
Having something like a reliquary about it or a museum archive box, the collection serves as both celebration and reflection on life.
