TWO CENTS is a minimalistic jewelry series made from copper cents.
For one earring a cent is heated up and passed between two revolving steel cylinders - like letting a train roam over it.
A circle becomes an ellipse as the material stretches.
Sille Luiga is an Estonian jewelry artist, graduated from the Estonian Academy of Art.
For years now she has been developing a design jewelry series called TWO CENTS under a brand name SILE LUIK Jewelry.
“Where I live everybody hates the two cents in their wallet. Most of the material I get from friends as “donations”. It is interesting to try and use cents in a way that gives the money back its value.”
