Mette Saabye. Brooch: Tears of Gold, 2016. Various gold alloy. 1.8 x 0.5 x 0.2 cm. Photo by: Dorte Krogh. We can express our feelings, and state of mind with tears.
. Scientifically tears are divided into three different types, based on their origin. Basal tears, reflex tears and emotional tears. Tears brought about by emotions have a different chemical make-up than Reflex and Basal tears.
. Emotional tears contain more of the protein-based hormones prolactin, adrenocorticotropic hormone, and Leu-enkephalins, a natural painkiller. No tears are identical and you can't tell if a tear is brought by in anger, sorrow or happiness. These tears of gold are all individual, and their karat are kept a secret. I will make it up to you to decide if your Gold Tear refer to a sad or happy memory, or simply caused by the action of peeling an onion.. Mette Saabye
