I've been collecting antique prosthetic eyes for some time. I'm drawn to their intimacy--prosthetic eyes were historically made by hand in the image of a specific person. The size, shape, color, and even details as small as the number and placement of veins are all unique. Somehow, many of these prosthetics have been lost to time, with no way of knowing the kind of person their owner might have been. I wanted a way to visibly honor these unknown people, and it seemed fitting to me to transform these pieces into jewelry that could be treated with the utmost care.
This pendant is made with an antique acrylic eye set in a brutalist-inspired sterling silver setting. Each of my eye pendants are built around one unique prosthetic, so every pendant is one of a kind. This ready-to-ship piece comes with an adjustable leather cord.
