girls for boys 2008 - radka passianova


In these pieces created for “Girls 4 Boys” I have used a combination of sterling silver and separate parts from crashed motorbikes. These pieces of jewellery are made for people that are deeply attached to their much loved “two wheeled beasts” and are often unable to part with them once the machine has crashed or is ready to be sold.
I have created several pieces that carry memories and parts of bikes. The idea is that anybody can wear them and at any moment be reminded of the good times that they have spent on a bike.
People are often deeply attached to their material belongings and I am hoping to find the answer to ‘why?’ through the process of making new and different objects from the old.
