One side of the medallion has a Great Lakes' style floral motif composed of hand-stitched glass beads or manidoominens which in Anishinaabemowin translates to "little energy or spirt berries". The flip side incorporates electronic components that are assembled on a circular circuit board into a floral motif. Like the glass beads, electronic components control, store and release energy, so there is a powerful simile between these two disparate entities. The wearer can choose to wear the traditional floral beaded medallion, or reverse it to wear the electronic component contemporary floral motif - a confluence between the historical and contemporary.

"For all of us it can look like a lot of things are going wrong on so many levels and so many places around the world. I thought it was an appropriate time to look back at a social contract drawn up in 1789. La Déclaration des Droits de l’Homme et du Citoyen or what translates as the Declaration of Human Rights - is not perfect nor is it complete - but I think it is still a powerful statement that needs to be heard again.
In the French language, I reproduced the original document in a mosaic style with over 17,500 letters composed of murrini. The murrini technique originates from Roman times and has recently been revitalized. Over several months, I created each hand-made letter with Italian Moretti/Effetre glass - COE104. I used a dark red reminiscent of the colour of blood for the letters with a ivory background as contrast and to symbolize the ivory tower that freedom has to be taken from. A murrini triangle with an eye found at the top of the work represents equality and the all-seeing eye of Providence. All these letters are set into a frame that is from the late 1800’s.
This piece aims to take the ancient technique of Murinni and create one of the largest work of its kind with the text of what I believe is still one of history’s foremost expressions of human rights."
