I wanted to design something special to celebrate Cocoon. A Cocoon is one of nature's beautiful creations, but was extremely challenging to recreate due to its unique shapes and textures. The piece you are seeing here is a final design after many, many attempts. I wanted to find a way to incorporate a "literary or lyrical" concept into the piece, and being able to display the text on the cocoon, was an accident actually. (Sorry, I'm not going to give away my jewelry-making secrets and tell you how it happened) I wanted this piece to embody certain elements that I feel belong in "Cocoon" the album: grace, fragile exterior, innocence fading away, and pleasure in being.
P.S. You might want to visit my blog on the 3rd of April (2 more days). I'll have a little surprise for you guys.
