Defense of Life II

Robin Cassady-Cain

This is the second necklace in a series examining the duality of the human immune system, both the positive defense aspect and the darker, more destructive self-consuming aspect. The hollowforms are inspired by the shapes of lymphocytes and macrophages, two integral cell types of the immune system, while the solid metal links of the necklace represent the kinetic flow of circulation. One-of-a-kind piece, ready to ship.
