Inspired by her studies of political and cultural relations between various borders, the Ana de la Cueva Border Necklaces symbolize the complex nature of these kinds of infrastructure.

Ana de la Cueva looks at the impact of government-imposed borders at the human level. In particular, she analyzes the Mexican U.S. border where concepts such as human trafficking and illegal aliens are created every day. Having been born in Mexico, the artist knows that those who live along these demarcations can often be carried into an existence of turmoil and instability. Expressing her political findings through her artwork, Cueva shares these concepts with the wearer through her intricately wrought, collar-shaped necklaces.
