Views of the beach

Silver shorelines Necklace (Aerial view) Waves coming into the shore.

This necklace was inspired by aerial images of shorelines and experiencing time at a beach. To me, an aerial view gives you on one level an understanding of an area and its elements and on another, it provides a new way of looking at an area in terms of a pictorial image. It allows the viewer to enjoy seeing a transformation from something in realistic form to seeing in the semi-abstract. The aerial image, due to its condensed nature, when perceived in a more abstract and pictorial form, provides a focus on colour, form, texture and pattern.

I enjoy these aerial views and consequently wanted to a design a necklace about the topic. The completed necklace is symbolic of an aerial view but also incorporates the idea of a remembering an event, for example, an evening at the beach and all that is beautiful about this experience.
