Psyche Metal Pins
Major: Graphic Design
Genre/Medium: Hand-Crafted Jewelry/Brooch/Recycled Metal
About the work: The phrase “Journey to a Metal World” excites me about what waits for us to discover on Psyche. One of those things being metal, I wanted this project to feature the material in all of its repurposable glory. Using recycled pieces of metal jewelry, I have handcrafted two brooches inspired by the asteroid and the spacecraft of the Psyche mission. The Asteroid brooch features the two prominent craters mimicked by radial bursts of metal scraps, along with rocky-textured metal plates to mimic the surface of Psyche. The spacecraft uses rectangular metal scraps with smaller, more detailed beads and rods to mimic the instruments on the actual spacecraft.
