Snakepit - Solange Azagury-Partridge
“A collection of five precious objects designed as jewellery boxes. The box becomes the jewels. Each box tells its own story.
In outer space is the Snakepit, floating on its rock crystal star. When opened, this studded constellation of diamonds on matte black gold becomes a cuff that can be worn on the wrist. If you take the lid off and look down, you will see the floor covered with writhing snakes. Two skeletons have been left behind, unable to escape, doomed to be worn as earrings. The floor and the ceiling of the Snakepit can be worn as pendants.”
