ARTIST STATEMENT
The piece is worn around the neck. It hangs by hemp which has been dyed to match the rocks and twined on itself for both physical and visible strength. The hemp was then waxed for longevity.

In our land girt by sea the beach has played a large role in the shaping of a national identity. There has been a constant companion to the long summer days. An invisible barrier to a beloved enemy. It creates a physical shield to protect our soft skin from the rays blazing through our ozone poor atmosphere.  Keys, wallet, phone, sunscreen.
