Artist Statement: 

My work is an exploration of body ornamentation and sculptural jewelry. This link continues my recent theme of work which is a tribute to a lifetime of seamstress work and is symbolic of how we sew together the experiences of our lives to create ourselves - who we are and who we’ll become. The link pays tribute to the circle of life. We live, we die, and we leave behind our history, our work, and our legacy. The Series celebrates the life and honors the death of my mother; all mothers who sacrifice for their families.
