These nipples were hand-sculpted in clay and molded in silicone. Hot wax was then poured into the mold to prepare for lost-wax casting. They were all cast in solid bronze.


This piece was originally made into a mobile titled "Oh, Baby," but was taken apart to make individual pieces of jewelry.

How would you feel about these if you were told they were male nipples? Would you feel differently if they were female?
