Artist Statement: 

This piece is a brooch as well as a wearable instrument of imagination, theoretically helping locate the wearer in the universe. No matter how the pieces are rotated, you are at the center of the universe! A marriage of metal forms the back plate with three independent dials held in place with one mechanical connection. Two halves of a Tabasco geode are set within sterling silver domes; one half always resides in the center while the other half is always close by.
