We loved with a love that was more than love. ~Edgar Allan Poe Universal and unambiguous, the Embrace is an act of endearment that is well understood across communities and creed. Without the use of words, the act of embrace signifies Love, Friendship, Trust, Sympathy, Consolation and Affection, all which make us human and happy in this often chaotic and unpredictable world. Our interpretation of Embrace is to showcase the act as an energy that is existential and infinite beyond an individual’s lifetime. When two individuals come into an embrace, their bond transcended physical boundaries and sometimes, such memories last beyond their lifetime as captured in films and photography. This is a daring piece that take the challenges of traditional structure of rings in jewelry making. It shows two person in the form of their skeletons locked in embrace forever with the skull attached to the spine, spreading out to the rib cage and attached to another in symmetry with another skeleton in a term of endearment. Grim as it can be, it actually celebrates the human spirit of life and love.
