Tradition + Protest: Reimaging Adornment as Symbols of Ukrainian Resistance
This is a tribute to the courage, strength, resilience and beauty of the Ukrainian Women.
My interpretation of a traditional wedding ensemble. This small installation is inspired by current symbols of protest (sunflowers) and the popular wearing of traditional wedding flower crown (The VINOK), ancient adornment (The Kolty) Earrings/Pendants with Venetian glass necklace (The Pazyorky) - the most desirable glass accessories because hand-made beads were transported from Venice.
These pearls are flawless with exquisite natural color lustre. Large perfectly round freshwater pearls of this size are special!
18K Gold earwire setting. 12mm Freshwater cultured pearls. Total earring length 1.25 inches.
