I think this necklace has pagan origins. The harvest comes to mind. The turning of autumn’s colours, the browning of the leaves, the leaves that seem gold in the fading light. The quartz chosen is full of inclusions. The light and display of nature’s intricacies. Phallic shapes in nature’s creations. The acorn. The falling fruit. The celebration of the harvest, the strength of creation.
I made these Fantasy hairpins. They are inspired by hairpins you see from movies of ancient times. They look a little like something from an archaeological excavation. Like bones with a touch of fantasy. I really want to continue making them, they’re very interesting to me. Part art part functional. They represent a certain elegance. What can you say through your sculpture at the tip of a hairpin that when someone wears they will be reminded of ? Questions. Hairpins are interesting. People don’t really notice them but they do make a statement about who you are
