Pillow Lips Lip#5 convertible necklace from Under The Killing Moon series
REWARE one-of-a-kind convertible Lip necklace and brooch, "Pillow Lips" from the Under The Killing Moon series. Wear the lips around your neck to be in the “throes of passion”, then kiss them to your jacket lapel as a statement piece.
Made from repurposed LEGO® and Argentium silver with nylon coated steel wire threaded through the neck cord and a LEGO Technic Brick clasp. Neck cord is removable and hooks into the back of the lip brooch. Brooch backing made from recycled tin with steel pins and sterling silver accents.
emiko explores this new series of work, inspired by Salvador Dali and Luis Bunuel's Surrealist imagery, New Wave/Post Punk music, Hedwig and the Angry Inch, and high fashion photo stories. Upon close inspection the lips appear Neo-Impressionistic and abstract, but when viewed from afar the image clarifies – much like love in its first stages where true perspective is gained only with distance from it.
Brooch: 5"L x 4.125"W x 1.375"D
Necklace: 18" x 0.625"W x 0.375 - 0.625"D
