'Ola' translates literally to 'wave' in Spanish, I chose to represent waves through this piece by mimicking the soft, undulating rhythm of disturbed water. Water is a form I'm constantly drawing inspiration and enlightenment from when I reflect on how essential it is our livelihood. Beyond hydration, it plays an integral in the creation myths of cultures across the globe. Interestingly it always plays the role of the source from which life sprang, the substance used by the Originator to bring both himself and creation into being. Beyond mythology, I love to explore the ways that water makes possible the basic functions of human anatomy. From vocalization to being the carrier of our thoughts between synaptic communication.
My intention with the Ola Necklace is for it to serve as a reminder that we have a beautifully intimate and inseparable relationship with water.
