My observations of everyday lives and daily rituals, and my curiosity about the logic of each event have nurtured my work. Playing with conventional jewelry components, such as broken jewelry parts and gems, I am striving to create a dialogue about the subconscious pursuit of excess.
Having traveled around the world, I appreciate the organic combination of jewelry and the human subconscious. From an antique royal tiara displayed in a museum to a street vendor’s thrifty beaded necklace, the act of adorning and choosing adornments has always kindled on our desire for possession. Using uncomfortable visual associations about body fat, each object simulates the consequences of being excessively desirous. As these objects are adorned with gemstones and playful colors,however, the bitter reality gets sweetened up.
