'Linked: 231' necklace
From Carlier's 2019 exhibition 'Linked', this sensuous, draping necklace is made of blackened silver, made of 231 handmade jump rings.
In these new pieces the works have become flexible frames for the figure in motion, no longer poised balance but fluid play between the human form and shifting shapes. Previous works with their structural tenacity, frames delineated and vibrating with exactitude have now collapsed. There is still structure, but it is a loosened and flowing system.
