Artist Statement...

My artwork is riddled with symbolism and hidden meanings, and everything I create has a purpose. Every motif or series holds a universal expression, and it must tell the reader a story while serving a function. The majority of my influences stem from ancient cultures that were not only connected to nature, but who also took pride in craftsmanship. They knew something most contemporary humans do not, quality not quantity. At the time jewelry items were created using traditional methods. Life was much simpler then, and mass production was not a factor. Their items of adornment revolved around realities, legends, and myths. By creating superstitions around these fabrications, they would transform wearable items into psychological entities. The jewelry and clothing they wore affected their thought patterns as well as behavior, and would also greatly reflect in their rituals. My passion is to merge and integrate these old meanings with our modern time. I have made it my mission to research the ancient spirituality that has been lost to most of us for a long time... By valuing modesty and kindness, I have devoted myself to society by using my art as an influence. It is my hope to create a sort of revolution; that one day my work may bring all of us back to Mother Earth. I Feel the further we stray from nature; the more our civilization will crumble as we strive for something to believe in. Within these fallen crumbs lies a message; one may doubt a higher power, but energy will always exist.

Hi Dawn,

I was so excited to meet you because I am going to a jewellery show this weekend, but alas, it is not SNAG. I am going to Munish to see Schmuck. I will hopefully make it to SNAG when I am back in North America next year. I am so glad you like my work. I have a new necklace you might like, I should have pictures soon.

I LOVE your profile picture, your corsette and necklace are devine. I look forward to meeting you one day. :)
