"Undone Earrings" were inspired by a very short lived work created by artist Andy Goldsworthy where he assembled an inverted nest-like structure out of driftwood that was lifted and slowly deconstructed by the tide- seen in the documentary Rivers and Tides. Inlaid reclaimed 18k gold, floats and disperses in a sea of green.
If you haven't seen Andy Goldworthy's work or seen the DVDs about his art process, you are really missing out. This particular driftwood sculpture was taken out when the tide came in and it completely unwound! It was beautiful.
