“Leaf Spirit” achieves its full potential when worn through the experience of tactile, aural and visual qualities. This piece also allows the wearer to interact by repositioning the clusters or swiveling open the individual leaf pods to create more dimension. By choice, it can simultaneously adorn the front and back of the body while its weight provides a grounding physical presence as a counterbalance. This necklace undulates and produces sound in response to the wearer’s movement, creating a heightened sense of awareness. The dichotomy of a piece like “Leaf Spirit” is its harsh appearance yet gentle feel.
