Silver, pearl, glass, cork.
Unique piece

"Flowing Poetic Realm No. 1" is a piece of facial jewellery made from a small glass container containing pearls and a linear structure made of silver. The pearls 'drip out' with gravity as the hands turn the sides of the jewellery. The ' lacrimal groove ' becomes more pronounced with time and age and causes anxiety about the appearance of the face, with some people opting to remove it through medical procedures. The work uses a light-hearted, interactive atmosphere and the metaphorical nature of pearls to emphasise the precious experiences and stories that tear troughs hold.
