YOLO Man Limited Edition Jewellery by Pamela Irving
YOLO is a social media term meaning You Only Live Once.
Irving developed her YOLO Man character while constructing huge mosaic figures for Melbourne’s Luna Park. YOLO Man is a happy character embracing life. YOLO Man is essentially a head with legs and sometimes an arm or two.
He now appears as a range of limited edition, acrylic jewellery - as necklaces, earrings and brooches. In this range of 5 designs, and a range of colours, he wears a homburg hat as a nod to famous Australian poet ‘Banjo’ Paterson and Pamela’s recent series “YOLO Man Waltzes Matilda”. One Figure has one bare leg and one wearing pants, a reference to Banjo Paterson, who always had one foot in the city and one in the outback. These pieces are quirky and collectable and a part of Pamela’s search for Australian Identity.
The earrings have sterling silver fixings.
All come wrapped in black tissue and small cardboard pocket box.
