Artist's Notes

Attrition is both a form of coastal erosion and a reduction in size and strength.

This one-of-a-kind ring was designed and crafted during the toughest part of Metropolitan Melbourne’s second COVID lockdown, when we were experiencing the highest rates of new cases and deaths each day.

It is inspired by the coastal erosion threatening the 12 Apostles, a landmark collection of limestone stacks near The Great Ocean Road in Victoria, Australia. Although the Apostles were originally formed through natural coastal erosion, manmade climate change is speeding up the rate at which this landmark erodes and declines. Due to wave action eroding the cliffs, existing headlands are expected to become new limestone stacks in the future.

I visited the 12 Apostles in February, just four weeks before the state went into its first COVID lockdown.

The rare teal coloured tourmaline with it's visible inclusions was chosen to mimic the pristine teal ocean waters surrounding the limestone stacks.
