About this artwork

Bless’s Cable Jewelry represents the group’s ongoing effort to transform the appearance of the electronic cords,
cables, and chargers that are indispensible to everyday life. Resisting the tendency to hide these objects, Bless decorates them with eye-catching materials such as lace, rhinestones, beads, and fur. The variety of styles in the collection allows users to match any decor. This version, featuring chunky blocks of natural wood, introduces a handcrafted sensibility that counters the nondescript quality of mass-manufactured electronics.
