Leah Piepgras Pearl Necklace

Pearl Necklace

Designed by Leah Piepgras

Pearl Necklace is a seemingly amorphous cast silver shape on a chain that is actually an accurate representation of semen. It is a visual marker of chaos turned perfection through an act of beauty and lust. Pearl Necklace is a physical reminder of a fleeting moment of pleasure.

Girl with a Pearl Necklace is the remains of an experience. It is about trying to hold on to something beautiful like taking a picture or trying to remember, but also creating a beautiful object. It is a creative act made still. Making art and having sex are really not so different.

All this being said, I am acutely aware of the cultural read, and perceived pornographic nature of the necklace. I see the necklace as having several cultural reads competing simultaneously and want the piece to morph back and forth between a beautiful object, an artifact from an intensely personal and intimate moment, a pornographic money shot. Wearing the necklace changes the ownership of the act. For me, making an object is similarly an act of empowerment. It is a choice to bring something fleeting into being. 

Leah Piepgras is an active fine artist working out of her Massachusetts studio.
