Conceptualizing the pressure to find The One.
This project was inspired by the relatively new American Christian tradition of purity rings and the weight of my own backwards, secular desire to find salvation or sense of "completion" in another human being.
This solid brass bracelet must be permanently riveted together to clasp it onto the wearer's arm. To be released, the wearer must saw off one of two brass prongs to free the engagement ring that binds the bracelet together.
Bronze, engagement ring, silver rivet.
