I have always been a minimalist, but his week, as I sat at my workbench deciding how to set some beautiful stones I've had for years, I decided to go over the top and make pieces with lots of texture. The result is still minimal, but in a baroque-fossilized kind of way.
You can find these one-of-a-kind pieces in my shop.
For the past few weeks I have been working on a project that is close to my heart: a virtual gallery to showcase every piece I've made since I began creating jewelry five years ago.
As I sorted through all of my pictures, I felt lucky to curate my own retrospective, just as I feel fortunate to be able to share my work and ideas every day. I think artists of the past would have had much better lives had they been able to show their work so easily. As a child of the seventies, I am still in awe of the possibilities of the digital world.
My creative work is like a web of ideas that are tied together, and one idea leads to the next. As I looked back, I was struck by how many pieces I had forgotten I'd made, and I saw possibilities that I had not seen before, ideas that can be developed further, gaps in the web that want to be filled. I hope my work inspires others to create their own network of ideas, and that this leads to a world enriched by more and more unique personal perspectives.
My archive is finally complete and you can see it in the gallery section of my website, or by clicking here. I will be adding new pieces as I create them.
