But Also Necklace No. 3
Sometimes I struggle to know where I fit in this world.
I'm 54% European (British and Irish, mainly), and 46% African (Cameroon and the Bantu People, mostly). I love feminine jewelry and wear a masculine haircut. I listen to Chance the Rapper and Glen Miller Orchestra.
I think, as humans, we naturally want to organize things - and people - into neat little categories. It's mostly for our own comfort and peace of mind. Except things are so rarely neat and orderly. There nearly always exists a "but also" - a world outside the box; it's without limitations, a freedom to enjoy what moves your soul.
This piece represents my "but alsos". What are yours?
