MIMESIS Respiration - Silver Earrings
’Respiration’ Our earrings ‘Respiration’ are inspired by Jasmine Pradissitto’s sculpture”Breathe”. The large spirlling earring is inhale, the curved petal design representing exhale. Elegant and relevant, Respiration is made from 100% recycled sterling silver.
Inspired by ‘Breathe’.
Jasmine took inspiration for her sculpture ‘Breathe’ from The Bridge of Sighs in Venice, where she had a solo show in 2012. The bridge is so called because it was used by prisoners as they crossed from the court room, in the Doges Palace, to the dungeons next door. The holes in the bridge of sighs were the last chance they had of seeing the world as they traversed the canal.
The fact that the shapes, (much like the lungs are shaped like trees) mimic the waves in water or the billow of clouds or the the swirl of a petal ties these into the series.
