Abstract: I believe objects have a lifespan, they have the capabilities to experience decay and metamorphose into something new. In my work, attention to detail and craftsmanship is important. The ideas surrounding my work focus on venerating traditional techniques like filigree and granulation, which have been practically unchanged by history. Along with these traditional ways of working precious metal, I use excavated Victorian era dolls (and their parts), and mixed media to create contemporary jewelry objects that connect to a long-lasting tradition. Creating a strong individual body of work enables me to address my own concerns within the field of jewelry. Resurgence is an exploration of these ideas within the contemporary jewelry field.
