2017 Excellence in Jewelry
Using new technologies combined with traditional craft skill and values, I create jewelry that is an exploration of materials and processes. My forms are inspired by structure of all kinds, from architecture to plant life to fibers and fabrics. I use CAD software to build virtual forms, which are later recreated using 3D printing technologies. The output varies and might be cast in precious metals, dyed or combined with other materials to create the final object. I aim to create elegant, playful and complex adornments that complement the wearer and engage the viewer.
