Memento Project 3

Based on one of my own mementos , a plastic pregnancy sick which was the first confirmation that my daughter existed,  and I felt a beautiful form in itself.   I wanted to remake this stick into something that looked precious, and so reflected my feelings about it.

It was remade into this jewellery- like object, using 3D printmaking, and from a form made on computer aided design,  It is gold plated  and contains two pearls from my mother’s broken pearl necklace, which had been in turn left to my daughter.  This seemed to unite the three generations in the piece.   I chose the black and red box as it felt very womb like, and so seemed to fit the project.
