Intro
My first expectation is that I present an object intriguing enough to draw the viewer into close observation. Secondly, I would like the viewer to rethink their concept of what jewelry can be… to see the piece as both a wearable object and one that has a role beyond the body. Finally, I would like the viewer to understand that the work is both universal and personal.
