The Glass Chest with Opal is a statement piece born from a poem by the artist Casey Lechner. It was a dream of mine, to translate these delicate written words into silver.
What if your chest was clear like glass
and we could watch all your feelings float past?
And what if your heart grew big like a tree
then people would see
how loving you’d be.
It is a beautiful way to describe that matters of the heart are meant to be revealed and to show your true self. From the ribcage multiple hand forged poppies bloom, which are evanescent flowers. It is impossible to keep them because they whiter once picked and can only be loved from the place they root. A glistening Opal represents the beating heart of this design, spreading its magical light through the breaches of the ribcage.
This one of a kind pendant comes on a 45cm / 18 inch silver chain, which is adjustable in length.
Bones and Blooms
With the Bones and Blooms collection we enter the peculiar world of the Cabinet of Curiosities -or Wunderkammern! It is a room which stores and exhibits a wide variety of objects and artifacts, with a particular leaning towards the rare, eclectic and esoteric. Each oddity would individually and collectively tell a story about the person who put them together. They were mostly displayed to start a conversation and as way to entertain guests. The collector would tell its, often made up, history from lands afar.
With these new designs I have assembled my own collection of curious jewels inspired by this concept. Each meant to tell its own marvelous tale in silver.
