TWO CENTS is a minimalistic jewelry series made from copper cents.
For one earring a cent is heated up and passed between two revolving steel cylinders – like letting a train roam over it.
A circle becomes an ellipse as the material stretches.

“Where I live everybody hates the two cents in their wallet. Most of my material i get from friends as “donations”. It is interesting to try and use cents in a way that gives the money back it’s value.”
