Final piece 3: Bone and Flesh (Muscles and Skin)

These pieces are inspired by Gijs Bakker’s pieces focusing on the body and jewellery’s relationship to it. Does the body influence the jewellery or the jewellery the body? To reflect on this I wanted to replicate the wrist and have it wrap around the wrist, forcing this part of the body to become a bracelet that reflects the positioning of a bracelet: falling and resting around the forearm and hand. To examine this concept I would create this in 3 different materials and hopefully communicate 3 different things but in the same form.

Forton MG, RTV silicone, silicone pigment, nylon thread and sterling silver wire

The materials influenced one another and they evolved one after the other. For example, I used the shape of the resin slices in the second piece and the laser cut file in the third. This highlighted the connection between the pieces. However the different materials gave the pieces their own unique sensations.
