Lemon Wheel Medallion Necklace

Lemon Wheel Medallion Necklace


“So the freshness lives on
in a lemon,
in the sweet-smelling house of the rind,
the proportions, arcane and acerb.” 
― Pablo Neruda, Odes to Common Things

Designed in 2010

Piece No. 1 of the Organic Collection.

The Lemon Wheel Medallion Pendant is cast from a real slice of lemon, a rendering in a new material brings to relief the symmetry and harmony of this natural object. The focus has shifted from function to form. Lemons used to be one of my favorite fruits, like most kids I was probably fascinated how something so deliciously unpleasant made its way to so many sweets. Lemonheads, lemon drops, lemonade, I even sucked on lemon wedges meant for the grilled salmon or grownup cocktails, until everyone berated me for ruining my teeth enamel. Or maybe I just have a lower tolerance for sourness now.  

In high school I made a version out of a dehydrated lemon glazed in resin, inspired by potpourri.

Solid yellow brass with an adjustable faux-suede cord, the piece gleams like a fruity medallion.
