Nutshell-jewellery.



I made tryouts with burnt nutshells a while back. I've saved all nutshells for this project and I have a lot. But only made one piece...so far. The other material is fake coral.

Hej Anni,
Have you noticed that the subwaytrain floor often are filled with that kind of nutshells? I think your piece is beautiful! Does it "rattle" when you ware it?

It smells. I burnt the shells in my kinchen-oven, and the neighburn knockt on the door asking if there was a fire or some accident. And the smell stays... I wonder for how long?

But I got rid of this piece. Swapped with a textileartist, so now I have her work at home, and she has mine.

The fact that she liked the piece _because_ of the smell was a surprice for me. That was nice.

I like it much that somebody is actually using this smelly piece. I thought the smell would be "problem" and it was fantastic to found out the opposit.

Can you feel the smell of it from a distance? Or can you only feel it when you wear it?
