Collar Bone Adornments.

These pieces are all made from raised Brass. Shaped to the contours of an exaggerated form of some collar bones. The original mould was from my own, but i carved away at that mould to make the bones even more prominent.

In the story of Cinderella, the stepsisters cut off their toe and heel in belief that they will receive the perfect life as the Prince’s bride, from this small task of making their feet fit into a glass slipper.

In today’s society, having the ‘perfect’ body is seen as a necessity to be happy. In extreme cases it is desirable to be so thin that you have protruding bones. If these features are indeed such a desirable aspect of the social norm, then why are there not more adornments for these protruding details?

How far would you go, for the promise of the perfect happy ending?
