MJSA Design Challenge 2022: A Long-Awaited Reunion

3: David Thorp

When I create bespoke work, I like to draw inspiration from the client. For this piece, I focused on the idea of Lorna being reunited with family as well as her interest in ancient history. Her upcoming trip to Greece stood out, and in my desire to incorporate ancient motifs, I read up on Greek iconography and references to ancient Greek jewelry. In my research, I noticed parallels between the story of Persephone being reunited with her mother in Greek mythology and Lorna finally finding her birth family.
