Using techniques such as carving, forging, and sawing, this found object necklace is a tribute to nature, reminiscent of simpler times when it wasn’t necessary to live within fortress walls and one could live without fear. Objects acquired on rare trips out of the fortress are considered priceless because of how unsafe it now is – “nature walks” a thing of the past. Jewellery has become nature based and sentimental. Work is raw – creator's tool marks made while making the work left in pieces - if not metalsmiths are chastised. Elements of these necklaces are given as gifts for special occasions, and often bartered or traded as currency. This necklace would have started as a single pendant, than a bracelet, and eventually turned into a large neckpiece. Owning jewellery is a luxury – functional pieces such as metal bowls and tableware are more common these days.
