Garrote by Sruli Recht

This movie by fashion designer Sruli Recht of Iceland features a necklace from his latest collection, apparently used to strangle a woman.

Called Garrote, the movie was screened at DesignMarch in Reykjavík earlier this month and accompanies a necklace of the same name that comprises two scarab beetle-shaped pieces of volcanic lava hung from a piano wire.

Here's some more information from Sruli Recht:

On your neck I lace
This grave embrace


Take a breath, take a breath
It is your last before death
For on your neck I lace these jewels and erase

Garrote is a necklace - Icelandic volcanic lava moulded into black scarab beetles, magnetized and sealed on a spun-copper middle E piano wire.

GARROTE is a film performed by Heba Eir Jónasdóttir Kjeld and River Carmalt
