My definition of jewelry tends to consider more than only its wearability. Within my designs I play with this idea of a piece’s wearability. The works test how far we can stretch the definition of jewelry and still call it that. A lot of my works come from the realization that postures create shapes or make shapes visible and, as such, can be considered adornments of the body. With every position, whether standing up, sitting or lying down, our bodies change and new lines are being drawn. In an ongoing series of form studies, I highlight the parts that remind me of jewelry.

Due to the building guidelines that are in place in response to the COVID-19 situation, we are unable to install a new art exhibit in our Farmington Hills, Michigan and Fort Worth, Texas offices.

Thankfully, the majority of artists who currently have their work on display in our Michigan and Texas locations have graciously allowed us to continue to do so through the spring of 2021. We would like to extend a huge thank you to those artists and we look forward to continuing with a new exhibition in the summer of 2021.
