My jewelry illustrates emotions, experiences, and relationships through the abstraction and reconstruction of animal forms. This brooch is part of a series of bird-themed jewelry pieces that evoke feelings of love and longing. The heart-shaped birds represent the connections we make with others, the flocks we form, and the elevating feelings these relationships create in our lives. The blue version of this brooch was made especially for an exhibition at Gallery Baum in South Korea entitled "Blue: An Uncertain Spring" in 2021. The exhibtion focused on the color blue as a symbol of wisdom, introspection, depression, uncertainty, and hope in difficult times.
