Greece, 1956

What is left when being ends? The Earth is heavy with the armatures of the creatures that once walked it and the traces of their many histories, mainly shadows impressed on countless memories, behaviours and new lives. Here, the leaf becomes an eloquent symbol of that duality: a delicate residual structure bearing the visible remnants of the living flesh it supported, itself eaten away in a labour-intensive process that involves etching and piercing through the metal.In the background, its shadow, dark, flickering, a single being's fleeting imprint on Life's everlasting flow. Dotted here and there are the fossilised discovered bodies of sea anemones, another fragile and exquisite trace of past vitality.

Bracelet - Sterling silver, bronze, pigment, PVC, sea anemone findings.
