A gold ring with two empty claws representing the possibilities awaiting the borrower, also a diamond (for the literary gem), a ruby (passionate stories), and some coprolite (fossilised dinosaur poo - because sometimes the book is just crap). The shape is unusual, like the library with surprises around corners and unexpected spaces
Brooch for a Comedian’s Mother was designed for the comedians coming to Melbourne for the Melbourne Comedy Festival. I thought they needed a tasteful (but affordable) present for their mothers. It turned out a brooch would be too expensive, so I made a pendant.
I made library index cards for all the pieces - this is the card for the Melbourne City Library Ring.
