Illusions

Medium/Materials: Paper, copper

Dimensions: 9" x 6" x 1.25"

Year: 2013

Artists Statement: 

I began to think about alternate ways of using materials, such as paper, tyvek, and plastic that are not traditionally associated with jewelry. They are more accessible, lightweight, and colorful. I am repurposing paper and other materials so that they don’t look like what they are at first sight.

Through experimentation, I continually try to discover logical constructions and forms inspired by rhythms, motions, accumulations, and structures that that naturally exist in my surroundings and personal memories.
