A fragment of painting under resin, set onto papier-mâché.
Copper sides, aluminium back.
Sterling Silver earring hooks.
Measures - 1cm x 2cm x 0.5cm.
In a matte black box with black velvet insert.
Each piece is sealed with epoxy resin to make it durable.
This protection also adds a lens and magnifies the intensity
of the shifts of light and shade, colour and pattern.
Colours of Capri - some of the colours, moods and patterns of Capri island in the summer.
In this piece - There is the very upmarket side to Capri and thenthere is a much more relaxed and rural side where people simply get on with their lives as they have done for centuries. That's where I feel most at home. Here are traces of pink Lavender, faded terracotta, sun bleached chestnut poles, and turquoise tarpaulin, blending together with a gentle beauty.
This is an entirely handmade piece.
Please remove before swimming, sauna, bathing or showering.
Don't spray perfume etc directly onto Papier-Mâché Jewellery.
All the surfaces - copper, silver, aluminium and resin, can be cleaned and polished with a simple silver polishing cloth.
