Rocker brass and sterling silver earring (single)

This jewel is like a rocking chair. When worn, it produces a graceful movement. Generous in size, it is, however, lightweight. The shape combines a triangle in the upper area, forming the taut silver chain, and a circle in the lower area, consisting of a wrought brass ring.

The earrings in this series are like small mobile sculptures, portable sculptures that stem from other larger ones I have been making for some time and have shown in two exhibitions, Delicado bestiario (Delicate Bestiary, 2009) and Cazatiempos (Time Hunt, 2010). To emphasise their unique nature, the earrings are designed to be worn individually, on one ear, accompanied by a smaller earring on the other ear to create an evocative effect.

Dimensions: 8 cm in length
