Necklace Project

The neck I have made was designed around soda cans and the common idea what most people know that involve soda cans; opening a can on a hot summer’s day and pouring it into a cup to enjoy it with ice to cool oneself off on a hot day. The branching pattern of the wires that are holding up the cans flow as if they were being pouring into the main ring of the necklace. The wires give a sense of fluid energy as the wires flow from the can to the main ring. Along with the branching pattern, there is also a spiral pattern that is given off by the flow of wires connected to the main ring. The necklace has an element of wabi-sabi with the use of the cans by using their unaltered, original shape. The cans also add a grunge look to the necklace with the recycled usage of the cans. As a necklace, the one I have created sits well and stable on the shoulder and neck area of the wearer. The necklace rests perfectly without leaning to one side to another. The formal elements of the necklace include line, shape, form, and color. The conceptual elements are unity, balance, gravity, structure, and direction. The metaphor behind the piece is that of pouring soda, or and other liquid, into a cup with ice to enjoy it at desired temperature. The repeating green and red cans work aesthetically because of the complimentary colors good well together. The necklace as a whole works well with together, there is minimal movement in the branching cans and the limbs are mostly stable.
