Inspired by the idea of life freezing in time, the gradual blacking and dwindling of the state of our minds. Natural scenes and landscapes indirectly mirroring my thoughts and mindset. The frozen reeds and water mirroring what our lives have become. Life halted mid-flow, stripped from human interaction and creative thoughts. Frozen. The blood in my veins freezing along with the natural plant-life veins providing them with life. Adopting an engulfing, choker style design to create a sense of entrapment and discomfort for the wearer. Complimented with an enlarged, hammered chain and catch to fasten the neckpiece, (can be worn at different lengths) symbolising imprisonment and distress.
