sterling silver, silk thread
8 x 1 x 7cm
String Theory is a fabricated pair of earrings made from sterling silver and silk thread. This piece is an extension of my jewellery range ‘String Wheel Series’, exploring conflicting feelings through contrasting materials.
Each silver ‘wheel’ is connected by thin strands of silk, creating a repetitive pattern. The exterior of the earring is rigid and strong, while the interior fragile and complex. The relationship between these materials reflects my experience with human emotions; contrary feelings existing simultaneously. Ultimately, through these contrasts I aim to express an underlying sense of balance and unity in my work.
