The Flashback Necklace // July 2012 —
The Chasing Clouds Collection.
She’s running after something, who knows what. At times she’s alive and full of wonder, other times she’s pensive, lost in the dark wood. The clouds are constantly changing. At times they abound in firey reds and purples of all types; at others they turn inward in menacing charcoals, covering the blues and unveiling the rain. The clouds are constantly changing. At times they seem tangible: in reach as they are in sight. Other times they are but wisps that threaten to dissipate if she gets too close.
But still, she goes on, chasing clouds.
All of Dante's characters find themselves pondering the things they used to chase on earth- from opulent wealth to magnificent power; from carnal lust to intoxicating knowledge - these are their clouds.
The Flashback Necklaces mark the significant landmarks of Dante's journey. His narrative is told in retrospect- certain moments serve as reminders of the past, those both painful and intoxicating, sometimes they encourage him to go on, other times, they provoke a deep feeling of stasis.
They are cast in 24kt gold-plated bronze, and hang on a 45 cm gold filled chain.
