2018 Excellence in Jewelry

My current body of work is a series of hand-pierced, powder coated jewelry that focuses on image, pattern and decoration in order to reference ornamentation and historical jewelry. Utilizing silhouettes allows me to reduce images down to their most basic form and reference the history of jewelry with a clean, contemporary aesthetic. This is reinforced through a limited powder coating color palette of black, white, various shades of grey and the occasional pop of yellow, which alludes to common colors of metal such as silver, gold and oxidized metal.
