Thanks for getting back to me so quickly, and for the book recommendations. As per your long time interest in memento mori objects I doubt I have anything more to add. I'll be in touch as the article progresses.
I'm working on an article for Metalsmith about mourning jewelry and I'm interested in your work. I have the review from Gallery Flux in 2006 and the images from your website. I cast a pretty wide net while doing research, so I don't know exactly where I'll end up, but if I would like to use some of your work, I'll let you know so we can have a really good image. Naturally I welcome any other information or new work you'd like to share.
