My work comes from a love of crafting and telling stories. I grew up with my nose in a book, enthralled by the worlds and characters contained within the pages, and wishing I could step into their realm. I now seek to capture that same level of whimsy and magic within my own work. Whether it’s a metallic pelt of a chimeric creature, or a cloud drift spun into a ring, I’d like to infuse a little bit of wonder into mundanity. I am first and foremost a storyteller; I just write in metal instead of ink.
This shoulder brooch is based on the idea of a phoenix being consumed by its flames.
