New Piece that is PART of a Piece

Here is a set of three pins that interlock. They can be worn individually, or in any combination. The mechanism that links them together folds to the back when not needed.

They are sterling silver, 14k gold, copper, and anodized titanium.

They are PART of a piece because, though I have not finished the next phase, the pins will form the center of a teapot entitled "House in the Woods". They will fold into a triangle, hinged at the corners, and sit under a dome of pierced silver trees (the woods) with a handle and spout of white fossil coral that look like tree limbs.

I began this piece at an artist's residency at Ragdale Foundation, which permitted me the kind of uninterrupted work time it takes for me to create complex work. I'm not sure when I'll manage to finish, but meanwhile, I want to share this triptych of fully-functional pins.

Note the teapot next to the chair in the living room, and the cat looking out the window of the dining room (bedroom?)
