Conch, 18k gold plated brass

Taisha arranged fragments of queen conch shell to mimic cursive writing often seen on nameplate necklaces. The arrangement is a suggestion of a title or a name as it does not actually spell anything. This ambiguity leaves room for the wearer to label themselves as they wish. The ‘I am’ neck piece is about adaptation, evolution and freedom to dream. With her recent collection titled 'I Had a Dream of a New Old Caribbean', she composes alternative origin stories of afro-Caribbean people as a tool for imagining new futures untethered from stories of enslavement and colonialism. In this collection she uses Queen conch shell- with this material she imagines that one of her African ancestors was a skilled Ivory carver, and upon their freewilled arrival to the Caribbean found conch shell as a fitting replacement for Ivory to adapt their skills to. These skills were passed on through generations and carries on today through Taisha’s hands.
