Effervescence Necklace

Artist bio: Climate change has caused me to reevaluate my part in our ecosystem. After a quest to find eco-friendly materials. I choose to work with glass, not only because it’s renewable, but also because it is a process driven material with a long history. Through years of experimentation, I have developed my own approach which blends traditional glass cold-working, jewelry making, & lapidary skills. Using a combination of interdisciplinary and unconventional techniques allows me to push the boundaries of my materials in ever evolving ways. My glass technique is called ‘cold-working’ because I sculpt the glass in its solid form while at room temperature using a wet diamond saw, flat-lap wheels, or a slow spinning, water-fed lathe. I hand-fabricate the settings out of sterling silver or gold using traditional jewelry making techniques. My goal is to convey a visceral feeling of depth and movement. I explore environmental themes and seek to emulate the fleeting beauty found in nature.
