Hand-fabricated

Two from one | Made from love

Inspired by a recent wedding the lotus design represents many things, and I chose beauty and eternity as the primary meanings for these earrings. Hand pierced sterling silver floral designs, and gold applied to the leaf studs in the keum-boo…

(Vale)ntine

This ring was inspired by the 18th century European tradition of Lover’s Eye jewelry, in which the eye of one’s lover was replicated with miniature painting and then set into a piece such as brooch or ring- often ornamented with…

The Interpretation of Biological Inclination as Demonstrated Through the Illusion of the Cyclopean Finger Sausage

This is a mental image of a scene created by the brain through the process of combining two images received from both eyes. The finger sausage is the silliest yet easiest demonstration of this stereo-vision which brings into play perception…

LTSCJN1 Dimensional Necklace

I explore space, movement, and surface by layering materials and patterns, drawing inspiration from the subtle intricacy of systems and minutia of visual life, objects and nature. My infatuation with the process of discovery is evident in the juxtaposition of…

Spring Radiolaria

Spring Radiolaria brooch/necklace began as an enlarged hand drawing of a microscopic creature. Mental deconstructing the zooplankton during the hand drawing phase, I morphed the creatures into flat layers which would rebuild as a 3D form. CAD software ingested the…

Untitled

Through my jewelry, I dive into the realm of emotions, driven by a creative process that weaves textures and patterns and informs the final design. My goal is to create pieces that exude strength and boldness, triggering an internal reaction….

Deity Pyramid Necklace

This sterling silver necklace is a symbol of divine femininity. The upside-down triangles, symbolic themselves, also feature a 3-dimensional bosom form. The hard points repeating along the neckline create hardness, while the tops of the pyramids are soft and rounded….

Thibault’s Favorite

The Artist describes this work as a rotary-blade slicer used for cutting pizza. The unique blade configuration and mounting fixture in the form of a lobster “crusher” claw is unprecedented, and a heretofore unknown configuration found among culinary implements. This…

Asclepias syriaca (a single flower)

Once thought of a weed by the wayside, the common milkweed (Asclepias syriaca) is now recognized as a vital link in our increasingly fragile ecosystem. Entire species depend on this humble yet beautiful plant. Its decline due to current wide-scale…

Spermatogenesis Intervention (Reproductive System Replacement Neckpiece)

“Hyperbolic Adornment (Implant Series III)” Artist Statement This series focuses on medical implants, the body, and embodied experience. These hand-fabricated objects glorify the highly individual and personal nature of prosthesis and surgeries, while evoking notions of memento mori and the…

Armatura Tear Pendant

I am interested in the power and purity of valuable materials. I seek to create beautiful sculptural objects which take unexpected materials framed in the context of power, seduction, and purity. My forms are minimal in structure yet resonate with…

Industrial vs Nature

I fabricate quirky brooches based on repetition and mechanized patterns. I am selecting discarded materials and distinct color combinations and re-inventing these into geological stratum-like pieces. My methodology is consistent, fabricating using classic silversmithing and stone setting techniques, merging these…

Singara

The most striking quality of my artwork is its vitality. I want my work to have pent-up energy, a graceful, intense life of its own; for it to be independent of the object it may represent. Art-making offers me a…

ice pin for Larry

My studio practice is an exploration of ideas. Starting with the familiar; fragments from nature, memories or reflections, I begin by building studies. The process of making, from the choice of materials to how the piece is fabricated continually informs…

Downfall of Ideal

As getting old, I found a gap between my ideal world and the reality. The more time passed, the bigger the gap became. I am changing to be a pessimist from an idealist. This is disappointing and depressing…

Blossom

My work is a combination of the rigid rules of stone setting and the idiosyncratic expansion of growth. It is a juxtaposition between control and the chaos of nature.

Nestleate

My work explores the interdependence between humans and the biological world around us. Forms and imagery combine to become sculptural manifestations of acceptance of mortality. I find beauty in the forms associated with decay, signifying the unending cycle of life…

Incoming Storm

I am looking at hurricane damaged landscapes photographed from above – from planes or helicopters as they survey and record the damage wrought by our ever more severe hurricane seasons. The post-storm scattered mess of flora, building materials, and ephemera…

Mitsuro Hikime 1

22 years ago, I dove into the realms of metalsmithing and gemology. My journey as an artist has been a symphony of creativity, technical skill development, and a dash of sparkling curiosity. As a GIA G. G. and a passionate…

Chronos

I often start with a castoff piece of enamel or silver that just seems like it might have a story to tell. This torch fired enamel was plucked from a box in a moment of boredom and sat on the…

Lightbox

I created the Lightbox necklace during a moment of despair in 2021, so it’s not surprising that the dark or white tone of each angular gem — labradorite, moonstone, quartz and mabe pearl — deviates from my usual colorful materials….

BEETLE Bug pendant

Inspired by motifs from the 1920s, 30s, and 40s, I try to interpret the details of what defined these eras into modern, minimal jewelry and big, bold, statement pieces. My primary materials are sterling silver, copper and titanium—adding color through…

Metamorphosis

While I have been creating my work using butterflies for some years, this particular piece is intended to capture a sense of positive change I have been experiencing in the past few months. Many of my pieces feature morpho butterflies…

Security Blanket – Patterned Protection

My work is typically a look inward at the trauma, dysfunction, awkwardness, or emotional state of self. Through introspection, I create repeated patterns and icons that relate back to familiar or personal subjects or recreate specific or hoarded items in…
