Abstract Circle Earrings,
inspired by Cranach's Melancholia. Designed for the competition of the SMK.
I wanted this design to be as reduced as possible. In the artwork there is a feeling of calmness, of quiet withdrawal. Melancholia is lost in thought, and on the horizon there is a storm coming, maybe even inside her own mind. But she is trying to put it all together, her little helpers eagerly at work to make it so. Will it be? Or will she go on, letting her thoughts wander and her time pass...
I like to imagine that she would wear those earrings if she would exist today, emphasizing her theme but in an oh-so-quiet way.
Sphere, circle and the straight line can all be found in the objects.
Hooks not included, because cast hooks will be too soft in the long run.
But intended as in the photo.
