Souvenirs of the Future

Earrings: pearls, quartz, 2013
Having tried numerous hair clips attempting to find one that doesn't get tangled in long curly hair, bought a box of hairpins as close to the ones worn by my grandmother as could be found, 3" long with ripples. The box contains a pound of hairpins! Edwardian corset in progress, a box of hairpins... Envisioned jewelry harkening back to the era of corsets and hairpins. Made a pair of dangling earrings with rice grain pearls above a faceted teardrop of smokey quartz.

Sou(s)- under, beneath
Venir- to come

To come from beneath...souvenir.
