ABOUT

TWO CENTS

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.

“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.”
