Dealing with emotional pain
Feeling emotional abandoned by your parents is painful. Somehow you have to find a way to get over that, how to turn the pain into gain.
I used nails to express the pain. While wearing this necklace the nails are pointing towards me, but already covered with a ceramic tube which protects me from the sharpness. And they have a golden head. The process of dealing with the pain is already started…
The necklace is called ‘Pagara’, because it looks like firecrackers, which I don’t like because of the noise and the smell… but still used for a happy last day of the year. Kind of the same double feeling towards the necklace: the inspiration was not only positive, but the outcome looks nice.
