About the work
In 2015 fine artist Jessica Hargreaves turned her painterly intentions towards the artistic medium of jewelry. This series is based on characters from "Rikki-Tikki-Tavi", the short story by Rudyard Kipling. The earring depicts a cobra ready to strike. At once playful and raw, this series gives a contemporary nod to Rococo and Romantic artists. Cast from hand-carved wax molds using a variety of metals and gems, Jessica Hargreaves’ textured and organic style is enlivened by a bold use of allegory and archetype with a dash of the absurd. Instinctual and irreverent. A compelling reminder of the irrepressible animal energies inside us all.
