ARTIST STATEMENT - JEWELRY
Jewelry caught my interest many years ago and the vast majority of my jewelry creations are one of a kind. I’m always experimenting with new techniques and materials, so my jewelry designs exhibit a wide variety of styles. Abstraction, materials, texture and colors are the inspiration for my work. I enjoy working with metal wire, glass beads, gemstones, and pearls as well as polymer clay, enamel or other contemporary style painting. I draw further inspiration from the organized chaos of nature or art forms. Works come together on my bench as elements find each other through planning or improvisation due to their proximity, association or chance. I occasionally work with recycled objects such as discarded jewelry, stone pieces or chips, sea glass pieces, crystal elements from chandeliers, and more. I am inclined to produce asymmetric or symmetric pieces that are highly stylized, despite the unstructured nature of some of these elements, resulting in what I call organized chaos with an intent, creating wearable art.
