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 wearers movement and expression.
My works are performative sculptures for ones ears, architecture for the body.
