14 Rings for 500 Rings

Mnemochronology No. 4 has just been selected for inclusion in Showcase 500 Rings, a new publication by Lark Books scheduled to come out in May 2012. The selection process was juried by Bruce Metcalf, one of my favourite American contemporary jewellers, known for his narrative jewellery and essays about the field.

Mnemochronology No. 4 is an object with 14 wearable, removable rings in enameled fine silver, felted wool and textiles. The series is based on the concept of dendrochronology, the construction of historical information gathered from the study of the rings of trees. Mnemochronology explores the possibility of the construction of personal histories taken from the study of rings for the finger. The rings can be removed from the object and worn, collecting the stories of the wearer.
