todo sobre mi madre – safe armour neck piece

todo sobre mi madre, 2008, safety pins, industrial catch * Inari Kiuru 2008

I've recently began to photograph my jewellery work, mostly for archival purposes. This is a neck piece inspired by the 1999 Pedro Almodovar film All About My Mother, made for the annual RMIT jewellery auction a couple of years ago. I like the graphic way safety pins weave together and form a strong yet light texture. One day I'll make a protective coat out of them. Armour for the city.

Thank you again Kiah Grace McIntyre for the long and patient loan of the piece.
