Beautifully simple, this pendant is a souvenir of the centrepiece installation of Blanche's survey exhibition. 'Ripple Effect', after which the show is named, is a series of 7 necklaces in increasing length and size, forming concentric circles in the centre of the gallery space.
"Overlooked, forgotten salvaged, and given a second life as a raw material for jewellery, my transformation of obsolete lenses (from spectacles and cameras) finds meaning in what is already here, hiding in plain sight. The glass lens, as both a material for jewellery and a metaphor, enables close investigation and careful looking. There is always so much more to life than first meets the eye." Blanche Tilden

Blanche Tilden has developed a unique approach to her materials, in particular glass, which she explores both as a material for jewellery making and a universal metaphor. Her fascination with mechanical devices, fueled by a desire to understand how things work, continually inspires her work. She lives and works in Melbourne.
