My work examines the role of jewelry in illustrating facets of the human condition. Centered on an exhaustive exploration of the language of materials, their properties, and the mysteries they convey, the works combine the original with the replica, the contemporary with the ancient, the ephemeral with the eternal. Archetypal forms such as eggs, beads, and shrines are combined with renderings of historical objects resulting in a group of necklaces that raise metaphysical questions about the appearance of forms and the reality they represent. Some of the works are presented as ephemeral neckpieces that undergo a change of material state when worn on the body. While insinuating the transience of being they appear in the age-old jewelry format of the beaded necklace and thus speak to a cyclical idea of life that encompasses the promise of renewal.
