'ENTRAPMENT' DIAMOND ENGAGEMENT RING
Black Diamonds (~10ct), Blackened Steel Barbed Wire, Rose Branches w Thorns, Glass Bottle w Cork Stopper
The choice and use of an industrial alloy and raw materials in this work contrasts sharply against the traditional diamond ring. Rather than a ring fitting a single finger, Entrapment encloses the three middle fingers, threatening to pierce the wearer should they move too far beyond small gestures. Tension holds the glass vial, a balance of dominance and vulnerability.
