Influenced by our relationship to our natural and architectural environment, I look closely at our often unnoticed everyday lives: telephone wires suspended amidst tall evergreens, the negative space expanding between two neighboring skyscrapers. I aim to solidify these relationships into objects.

Using cold-form fabrication, I build organic and geometric wire forms that pare down these environments to simple line modules. I then wrap translucent handmade paper around sections of each form creating tension, little kites of color that highlight ephemeral negative space.

These non-soldered jewelry structures move independent of one another, dancing on the ears, neck and wrists of the wearer. Like leaves on a tree limb, my adornments punctuate the wearer’s movement and expression.

My works are performative sculptures for one’s ears, architecture for the body.
