The work that I create today bonds the ancient craft of chainmaille to a contemporary jewelry aesthetic. The result is striking compositions that float and move on the body sensuously. Softness, transparency, and suppleness are qualities that guide my intention. This work is demanding and completely absorbing, requiring equal parts engineering and creativity to achieve the transformation of a rigid material into a liquid form.
I crafted the Corsage Bracelet from Oxidized Sterling Silver, 18K yellow gold, Freshwater Pearls, Rhodolite Garnets, and orange sapphires in 2019.
