The DIVORCE KNUCKLE DUSTER is 18 ct goldplated electroformed bird skull with white fresh water pearl. Due to the electroforming technique, each piece is unique. Mourning is not just about dead people, it is also about dead relationships and decaying marriages. Today, 42% of the marriages finish by divorce in UK and 38% in France. My divorce jewellery refers to old and contemporary wedding customs to illustrate this sort of mourning. As a French, most of these customs come from France as the Bride Globe which it is a present to the bride to put her bouquet and her crown after the wedding. All the decoration inside symbolize the union and give luck to the marriage. I use union and marriage symbols and subvert them to show the inevitability of the breakup, but also show that from these ashes may raise a new life.
