I believe that jewelry should not only be worn but also exist in its own right since it is an object, which of course ultimately needs to find its place on the body.
Someone who experiences my work, should instantly recognize the classic jewelry elements; gold, pearls, and MOP, but as they try to categorize each piece (as a bangle or a ring) they may find themselves unsure about what it is or how to wear it. It is precisely this reaction of recognition yet confusion, and the fine line between sculpture and jewelry that fascinates me.
Looking beyond the inherent value of materials I am interested in exploring color and forms which disorientate, intrigue, and ultimately delight.
