Ear Wax Necklace
Earwax is a secretive bodily material produced to protect a precious sense. When extracted it reminds me of amber, a precious and delicate jewel. Ear Wax Necklace enables me to carry and wear this material on display in an aesthetically pleasing manner.
Ear Wax Necklace was created using my own ear wax extracted over a period of eight months. The chain was created by spinning my own hair and then plaiting it to resemble a chain. To finish it off the Ear Wax Necklace sits on a plaster cast of my own upper chest.
