Jewelry - Concept Work
Art/Concept Jewelry -
Last year after the death of my Father, I was awarded a scholarship at the Baltimore Jewelry Studio after proposing the creation of a reliquary for him. Since then, I have been taking classes and creating pieces that connect with my sculpture background while utilizing upcycled/found objects and materials - directly connecting with my anti-trash initiative, Baltimore Trash Talk. The pieces I have been creating raise questions and conversations about death, love, addiction, gun violence and litter.
Two of the pieces featured in this portfolio are currently in an international online exhibition called
"So Fresh + So Clean", https://www.ethicalmetalsmiths.com/so-fresh-so-clean/
