I think that this jewelry operates as a kind of talisman. Talisman the word comes from the Greek word meaning to initiate into the mysteries. These pieces are momentos of places that may be significant to us both physically visited and in the imagination. They are objects that carry desire inside of them, operating in a kind of magical way initiating us into our personal mysteries.
I recently listed these big pineapple earrings. Now I am a Queensland girl, but I have never seen the big pineapple, but when I wear these on a cold day, I swear I feel lighter and sunnier as if they channel that sunlight out of my memory.
