The Temple Distraught with unsatiesfied longing she cannot bear the constriction of her clothes. Her hair hangs loose. Nothing her attendants do can calm her. Only physical love can give her consolation.

The jewelry is comprised of various parts that can be worn alone or in many combinations. I saw a picture in a book that fascinated me. It was an Indian erotic painting from 1810. The painting was incomplete and the artist unknown. I build the small temple and large jewelry to celebrate love and passion. Who was the person that unwittingly started a project that I now finish 200 years later? Silver, Titanium, Acrylic, Photograph, Text and Magnifying glass.
