Spinning Threads into Gold

I recently visited an exhibition at the Bangkok Arts and Culture center which I really enjoyed. The artist, Surasi Kusolwong, had collected a large amount of threads and strips of material to cover an area of the gallery floor. The threads were piled up and guests were welcome to remove their shoes and enter the soft and inviting exhibit.

After my friend and I had rolled around for a while we went to  read the artists description of the piece and discovered that there were six gold chains hidden somewhere in the mass of threads, and if you found one it was yours. Suddenly my whole perspective had changed (maybe I was sitting on one?!). As it turned out, I wasn’t sitting on one, or I couldn’t see it if I was and it was much more entertaining to watch others discover the concept and start digging. One woman was methodically working from one side to the other leaving discarded mounds behind her, and others had found a space for an afternoon nap.

On the day I visited there were 3 out of 6 gold chains left in the installation, I wonder if they will all be found before the end of the exhibition. I hope that Mrs Methodical finds one if only for her tenacity!

Batch Produced Silver ‘Molecule’ Cufflinks

I’ve recently applied to have some of the work I sell online certified as handmade through the website I sell on, and I thought I would share some of my batch production images here. I’d say these cufflinks are my best sellers so I often make mini batches to have on hand at busy times. And to be honest I love seeing all the matching pairs and sets lined up in unison!

Lined up in pairs ready to be soldered.
Cleaned up cufflinks but grubby fingers marks on the paper!

Dopamine Jewelry

For me the most exciting things about dopamine are the feelings of desire, the anticipation and the rewards. I wanted to make a piece of jewelery that reflected some of these things. I wanted the jewelery to have some extravagance to it because I feel that dopamine is a special neurotransmitter. I decided that this molecule in my jewelry would be a 3D structure so it had some weight and some added intricacy. The finished pieces are given a high polish to reflect the sense of desire, like a magpie I often find myself drawn to shiny metal so it seemed an appropriate finish.

The first necklace I made I think of as a dopamine rush with many small pieces of ‘silver dopamine’ linked together. This was probably one of the most time consuming pieces I have worked on and I was certainly anticipating seeing the finished result. The rest of the dopamine collection is inspired by this necklace.
