Voodoo Chile

These are my latest pair of earings, I came about this design just by experimenting with my wax rolled spirals and keeping ethnic jewellery in mind. The reason why I use spirals in most of my work is because I am somewhat drawn in by their hypnotic pattern, which seems to vibrate a mystic energy. I am amazed by the way a spiral plays tricks on your eyes the way it seems to move, even when drawn on paper, although it is static. For the most of it spirals are to me a freak of nature, they are one of the most predominant forms in nature found in clouds, plants, shells and water, and nobody really knows how or why they exist so to me they are a true natural mystic.
