Maru Almeida - Anything Can Happen

Artist: Maru Almeida
Materials: egg shell, hair, sterling silver, pearls
Size: 7.25

Artist Statement:
This ring is a commemoration and a reaction to the current times. Notions of fragility, the preciousness of life, organic matter, heightened awareness, loved ones, are all thoughts that cycle through as I construct this ring. The top is held by thin strands of hair pulling small pearls in tension. The ring also acts as a physical remainder requiring awareness of the hand and caution while worn.
