Brooke Marks-Swanson introduces her latest body of work, Topiary Circus. Always inspired by her immediate environment and daily life, Marks-Swanson translates her own observations or obsessions through an approach to jewelry that combines metalsmithing with textile construction. This new series is a response to the upheavals caused by the pandemic, a desire to translate anxiety and fear while seeking an escape through the ritual of creation.
