After many years of friendship and admiring each other's work, Milena Lye of Just the Goods and jewellery-based artist, Tricia Wasney, have developed a collaboration wherein Milena blended a skin care product in response to one of Tricia's pieces.
This tiny bronze petal on an 18” sterling silver chain was inspired by a geranium petal seen on the sidewalk on the way to Tricia's studio. The petal was cast from a wax model carved using the lost wax method. Much of Tricia's work is influenced by the landscape, memory, and forgotten histories and all is hand-constructed in her studio in Winnipeg.
Taking geranium as the starting point, then embracing the softeness of that petal as well as the warm, earthy tones of Tricia's choice of rose-tinted bronze, Milena blended calendula, chamomile, and rose to create a nourishing, soothing, and skin softening face mask for most skin types that promotes gentle relaxation with a light and delicate floral scent.
