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. At the moment she studies at 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.”
