Les Voyageurs de Temps

emiko oye series of art jewelry pieces, 2013. Made from repurposed and recycled LEGO® with sterling & Argentium silver.

Les Voygeurs de Temps (the Time Travelers) series utilizes the 21st century, heirloom-worthy quality of LEGO® (used and repurposed) in place of precious gemstones and metals. A timeless toy, globally treasured by many adults and kids alike, the vintage pieces gain considerable value with age and yet work in perfect unison with newly manufactured generation of LEGO®. Anyone who has ever owned or played with LEGO® has their own nostalgic bank of memories to pull from and feel compelled to share with others. La Reine de Pèlerin, (The Pilgrim Queen), is a nod to Cartier’s La Peregrina, with its detachable pearl pendant and stately presence. La Cérémonie de la Mémoire (The Ceremony of Memory) is another multi-pendant, convertible necklace, and whispers of the Maharajah’s Ceremonial necklace. Its design a deliberate, pixelated replication of Cartier’s 21st century version, mirroring our digital lifestyle, often experiencing life not in the flesh, but via a pixel-rich lens. The mid-section has been omitted, the entire picture “fuzzy”, just like our memories often serve us.
