Made in Switzerland 2009/2010

Made“ in German means maggot or grub. It represents one state of the cycle of metamorphosis. Its main concern is to devour in order to finally mutate to a beautyful butterfly, an ordinary mayfly or some other dipteran. This necklace looks from far away like a regular pearl necklace. A closer look is backstriking, because it seems as about 100 maggots are crawling around the neck. A pleasent shiver – an ambivalent feeling?
The material is preciuos, but the form evokes disgust.
