close your eyes

close your eyes


This magnificent refuge is inside you.
Enter. Shatter the darkness that shrouds the doorway…
Be bold. Be humble.
Put away the incense and forget
the incantations they taught you.
Ask no permission from the authorities.
Close your eyes and follow your breath
to the still place that leads to the
invisible path that leads you home.
-St. Theresa of Avila

made of: sterling silver, vintage lenticular vending toys
If you are not familiar with lenticulars, they show a different view of the image depending on the angle of viewing. One image morphs beautifully into the other as you move. I’ve tried to show this in the photographs but it is a challenge.
measurements: 1 inch long including the ear wire and almost 3/4ths of an inch wide. The ear wire closes securely into a small clip on the back of the earring.
process: fabrication, roll printing and patina

The lenticular toys are made of plastic, but they do have a paper backing, so it is best to not get these wet. Wipe with a damp cloth to clean.
