Demolition Jewel 3

All that chain making was not in vain! Demolition Jewel no.3 is complete. I loved making this piece – there are several things I like about it. It combines hard and soft materials – the leather is both strangely creepy and comforting. It has the odd brass light fitting as its’ starting point – I found this in a trailer outside a house that was being gutted or renovated depending on how you view these things. It has an articulated component which means you can point the pendant at odd angles while you wear it. The brass chain is made from scraps given to me by a friend. And the pendant is attached to the chain by a screw which happens to be the kind you use on light fixtures which is very fitting as this jewel materalised because of a thrown away brass piece from a lamp. Very complete.
