Chiharu Shiota Carrying Memory $32,000>
Elisabetta Cipriani Wearable Art

Through the use of 18kt gold, Chiharu Shiota intricately intertwines and folds threads which gradually expand into the universe, becoming an extension of the body in space. For the necklace, Chiharu Shiota chose to create the art piece around a key, a meaningful object related to everyday life. Viewing keys as “familiar and very valuable things that protect important people and spaces in our lives”, the artist invites us to make a profound and treasured connection with the necklace. Within the golden threads, Shiota suspends the contrasting silver key with a powerful, dark and dreamlike potency. Unique within a series of 8.
