18 karat gold necklace hand fabricated – in process. This piece is comprised of a simple bar chain leading to a setting, which will contain an emerald as the central stone and two diamonds flush set on the sides of the setting. More photos to come of the final piece.

Messing around with recycled copper settings and these glass cabochons (vintage Swarovski) – which happen to be my favorite color. Using enamel paint to brighten these growing conglomerations, I am soldering structures together, and together again. The results being earrings that display their industrial, manufactured nature while flaunting the multiplicity of a growing colony of organisms.

Drawn into the small moments, the micro view, is where I have found myself lately. A summer on the road – traversing thru far and wide, and clambering to see so much challenged my ability to take it all in. I found myself consciously and actively working to ingrain a certain place or moment or feel into my being, knowing that I may not be there again for a long while. I don’t know how well it worked as it always seems that images captured thru the lense become more a sense of reality and recollection than the actual experience of being there.
Back on familiar turf, I find it easier to name what I’m looking at – snapshots, the micro. I am content with losing myself in the surprises of overlooked worlds. Panning over mundane scenes looking for traces of the extraordinary.
