Shop Series, necklace #1

2012, Chipboard, nylon twine, 5"w x 20"h x 1.5"d

I create wearable art jewelry that stems from memories and drawings and explores the relationships that I share with people, materials and objects from my past. I am specifically interested in the role I have inherited within a family of craftspeople and heightening the beauty and practicality of the industrial materials I was surrounded by as a child. My use of jewelry is important as it activates the physical and emotional attachments to these sensory experiences when worn on the body, and in turn becomes activated when encountered by both wearer and viewer.
