this was also created as an homage to one of my oldest obsessions, the conjoined twin. the title comes from tod browning's cult movie 'freaks,' and explores my interest in those marked with physical abnormalities as a personal metaphor for the visualization of internal psychic trauma and how people are connected by these flaws and oddities.
The type of conjoined twin imagined here in cuff form is the Cephalothoracopagus, which is when the head and thorax are fused, having two faces but sharing one body. This cuff is also an exploration of the myth of the doppelgänger. It is believed that if you catch a glimpse of yourself within your periphery that it is a sign that you will die. However, I believe that the image of the doppelgänger can be seen as facing yourself or self-knowledge.
the skulls are solid sterling silver and therefore carry a slight heft. cuff circumference measures 5 inches and is adjustable.
