Description

The Trilobite is a popular feature in Una's work.  This new version of the style looks and feels like an ancient artifact.  Cast sterling silver Trilobites stand over a bronze stalactite wrapped in sterlling silver wire. 

Sterling Silver post style earrings and backs.

Measures .5" wide x 1.5" long.

Wearable and sculptural jewelry is created by incorporating sterling silver, bronze, copper, gold, and many other materials. The fusion of the ancient past and modern society is the focus of the work. Inspiration for forms and concepts of the jewelry is pulled from ancient functional and sacred objects of many cultures. Interpretations of ancient objects and symbols such as the abacus, mandala, papoose, and spiral are integrated with forms influenced by the modern society and architecture that we exist in today. The artist utilizes fabrication methods such as lost wax casting, forging, fold forming, conventional and innovative stone setting, soldering, and Ethiopian book binding as tools to create metaphors to study present society. The artist creates a conceptual bridge to span the gap of time, joining the past to the modernization of today.
