Oxidized sterling silver, 18K yellow gold
Gentle gold granules gather to the heart of this ebbed, sterling tide pool by Harold O'Connor. Awash in lavish material, its maker emulates the soothing motions of a rocking anemone as it delights in the rollings tides of an afternoon swell. Reticulating the silver, O'Connor reveals an entire story through its many, undulating ripples and intricate contours. Uncovering vast beauty on a small scale, the artist cleverly imparts a complex topography of handcrafted ingenuity. Curiously enough, the golden beads trail beyond the mouth of the work as three strands extend beyond, collecting at the bottom of the piece. Sumptuous, organic movement reveals the acute imagination of the maker as he, in very minute measures, brings his work to life. To wear either as a brooch, or as a pendant, O'Connor's animated masterpiece is sure to delight in any soul-stirring engagement.
