About This Artist
My jewelry centers bold colors and playful prints. To me, color and pattern represent pure joy. How we present ourselves to the world is a deeply political act. My pieces embody the defiant act of joyful self-expression. In a world where things are increasingly mass produced, handmade objects connect us to each other. They're also a potent reminder that we all have the capacity in fact, I'd say the need to create.
Q&A With This Artist
A: I make my jewelry using polymer clay, a medium that is very accessible but quite difficult to master. My earrings are handmade from start to finish, including mixing colors, cutting, baking, embedding studs, sanding, drilling, and assembly. The surface patterns on my earrings are created by hand -- I mix, cut, tear, and place each color onto the surface of the clay before cutting it into earring components. This makes each pair unique and a serious labor of love.
A: The possibilities with polymer clay are seemingly endless. This medium enables me to center bold colors and playful prints in my work. To me, color and pattern represent pure joy.
A: Honestly, the act of creating craft itself. We are drowning in screens and other distractions right now. Making something technical with my hands is one of the fully mentally and emotionally absorbing activities I get the privilege of doing.
