About the Piece
Rain Trippodi has been making glass bead necklaces for 10 years. They enjoy exploring form and movement in glass that approximates what is found in nature, leaning toward the ugly, creepy and uncomfortable side of beauty. The Octavia necklace was inspired by research into the movement and "thinking" abilities of cephalopod tentacles. Human reactions to snakes, tentacles and pseudopods range from wonder to fear to disgust. Engaging forms that are simultaneously attractive and eldritch enhances the beauty and power of pieces used to adorn. Rain hopes the wearers of their art feel powerful, attractive, and unconventionally beautiful. 22" long with gold filled clasp.
