Extraordinary Keys By Anika Smulovitz


Key: some thing that offers a way of get right of entry to; something that provides a way of clarifying a trouble. even though there are many definitions of the word, these resonated most for me after I noticed Anika Smulovitz’s sterling silver Key series.

Dandelion Key, sterling silver, 5″ x 2 1/8″ x 2 1/8″
Loss and Longing II, sterling silver, 5 1/4″ x 2 3/4″ x 1/4″

Globe Thistle Key, sterling silver, amethyst 5 7/8″ x 2 5/8″ x 2 5/8″Note the profile portraits cut into a number of the keys – amongst them, a profile of her mother at the Globe Thistle Key. i like this. moms keep the important thing to so much as we grow and study, as we adore and lose. quickly i can mark the first complete 12 months with out my personal mother and she or he is ever present in my mind. Anika’s key photographs delivered a tear and a grin.

Fern Key, sterling silver, garnet, 3 1/4″ x 7/8″ x 3/4″
Loss and Longing I, sterling silver, 5″ x 5″ x 1/4″

“It is not so much the key, as it is what the key can unlock that fascinates us.” ~Anika Smulovitz
