Ear Cuff ø 10 mm / 4 mm gap onesize Sterling Silver / Brass / Gold-Plating Also described as “Drifters” or “Wanderers” Plankton are a group of organisms that rely on the winds, currents, and tides of the ocean to get from one place to another. Plankton are building the base level of the marine food web – but not only as a food source but also as a carbon sink the wellbeing of plankton is essential for a future of humanity. Physalia Physalis – also known as “man-o-war” – belongs to the siphonophores and is a colonial organism. Inspired by the collaboration between the zooids I applied groups of textures to this Ear Cuff. The Physalia Physalis lives at the oceans surface, passively moved by the winds, tides and currents, using a sail-like floatation bladder. The “sail” of the colony just as the zooids (that differ in function but not genetically) display a diverse range of colours. This piece is handmodeled in wax and cast with the lost-wax-method. The entire piece is handmade in Germany and made-to-order – so please expect a production time of up to 15 working days.
