Pendulum is a brooch that makes the formal analogy with the pendulums of old clocks. It combines in a single piece a pin and a pendulum disc, objects normally used in very different contexts. Their silver and gold colours, its perfect rounded shape and the circular glow of the discs turn these metallic objects into potential jewellery pieces.

By changing the original using context of these industrially produced objects, into a universe that puts aesthetic contemplation first, we become aware of the creative potential of apparently common and worthless objects.
