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 pendant depicts the intertwined battle of the Snake and the Mongoose, one protecting its family and the other defending its friends. 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.
