This necklace is created with a Japanese technique called mitsuro. Liz Oppenheim sculpts with the wax in meditative process. The wax is warmed to body temperature in the hands until it becomes pliable, and then gently stretched like taffy. This stretching creates the finely grooved texture, called hikime.
The unpredictability of the process brings an aliveness to both the process of creation and the finished product. The finished pieces explore the simplicity of natural forms, and the process of pattern formation in nature.
Chain length: 16''-18''
