This series of earrings are made of three different combination of the teardrop elements I’ve been dealing with for sometime. I made the first tear element 5 years ago, in the time my daughter was very sick. I wanted to design a tangible tear that I would be able to play with, to turn the pain into aesthetic experience. but the meaning of the element changed in time, and is keep on changing in every combination. Now, it doesn't have one answer, and can relate to natural aesthetic I am longing to, as well as the urban aesthetic I am coming from. I love to think that jewelry making is like poetry - shapes that are very clear and refined, but with many layers of meanings.
