Holy Deadly 

Brooch

2021

Jet, 375 gold, cobalt chrome wire.

 

These little holy deadlies are halfway between heaven and hell - perhaps wiser than us, but quite silent, and beyond our reach. They remind me how everything in the world is wise, and alive, even if it is dead, or is just plain matter - and how much we could learn if only we were better at listening to everything around us.

 

They are made from black jet (an organic material close to coal), orange glow in the dark resin (that glows orange!), and bone (from a beef bovine), each with a golden halo, floating above and completing the brooch pin. - Sean O'Connell
