Jewelry adapts to those who wear it, becoming transformed within the context of each individual. My work explores the emotional connections we forge with inanimate objects, and the personalities imbued within them. Through simplified forms, I present a canvas onto which viewers project their own unique experiences, memories and emotions, thus giving life to what is lifeless.
