MILF Earrings

The wide bitumen streets are lined with sprawling McMansions and perfectly manicured lawns with colourful flowerbeds and supremely trimmed hedges in their front yards. The pink breasted galahs consciously peck away on the green grass lawns. Magpies caw to one another, their menacing calls cut through the hot afternoon air. Down by the water’s edge, the calm ripples of the bay’s waves wash over the sandy and stony shore, underneath the wooden boardwalk. The situation is still. Serene almost.

A pair of old sneakers dangle from the power lines above, swinging carefreely to the rhythm of the spring breeze. An odd place for an old pair of sneakers to seemingly be… but to those in the know, those sneakers marks the meeting spot where shady activity happens…

HORROR!

A meeting point for selling drugs in suburban Gladesville?! How can something so insidious thrive in this quaint community?! This is the backdrop and inspiration for my series of earrings titled: MILF. A series of 3, single, statement earrings. An imagined scenario where something similar to the plotline of the American TV show Weeds, sets up shop in suburban Gladesville…

The back of the earrings are curved with negative spaces saw pierced out. The negative and postive spaces represents the aerial view of Gladesville’s suburban streets. The front of the earrings have three chenniers in graduating height. The graduating heights pays homage to the reference “keeping up the Jones'”. They’re designed to represent the idea that neighbouring families are competing with one another following “the bigger, the better” mantra. The coloured enamel inside the chenniers reflect the colours of suburbia.

Varying shades of pinks, reds, greens and blues match the flowers, trees and backyard swimming pools. The silicone inserted in between the negative space in between the front and back of the earring represents the shifty, dark and sinister drug dealing world hidden behind the primp and proper facade of suburban Gladesville. Silicone’s ability to morph, stretch and be squeezed  mirrors the drug dealing community’s ability to pivot and evolve as required to stay hidden in the shadows.

Special note: At the time of writing and creating this concept, all elements in this story were completely fictional and drawn out from my imagination. But interestingly enough, late last year, there was a massive drug raid in an apartment in Gladesville.
