shard rings - 1994-96 sterling silver, brass, copper hollow construction, various patinas approx. 2" x 1 1/2" x 1/8" each
My current work reflects my attraction to bold minimal shapes
and their relationship of color to metal. I work with silver,
brass and copper, manipulating the material with heat to achieve
a sensuous richness and satisfy a longing for touching.
Beyond traditional jewelry function, I make work that wants to
be touched and experienced in an active, physical relationship
with the body. Rather than passive, non-intruding jewelrywork,
my objects invite the wearer-and viewer alike-to interact with
the piece, to test and push pre-imposed limits and to dare.
