About

 

In my work I seek to understand emotion.  Working instinctually, I recreate the tangible and intangible details from my past; my grandmother’s rosary, a line in a song.  As these fragments come together into one composition, I remember the story and emotion in a new way.  Though often melancholic, I have fondness for these memories and emotions and with that a desire to keep them.  In these compositions they no longer feel heavy, but appear beautiful and adorning.

Within the studio, I have spent the past year exploring my creative process and what drives me to create. Repetitive exercises that limit time, technique, and materials have generated recurrence of details and influence which, in turn, have brought clarity and direction to my work.  I have found new inspiration in my roots and a unique approach to embracing color, found objects, and narrative.

What are the adornments of dictators, despots, and the plain delusional? What do they need in order to let their real personalities shine through? What tools do tyrants have to show that they are in charge? See for yourself!

The MASSC Jewelry Challenge

They were given a timeline of 6 weeks to complete and return the finished piece. Photos were taken of everybody’s pieces and a luncheon was held for the members to vote on…See More
