I cast, fabricate and incorporate the textures and intricate forms found in the natural world to create jewelry that places nature into a new context. These pieces allow people the opportunity to appreciate nature from a new perspective – and to marvel at the connection between form and function that is the foundational basis of nature. I cast these three hellebore to capture the intricate details found in the blooms. I want to encourage people to really see the forms in nature and reflect on the world around us.
