sterling silver, faceted and cabochon stones, cocobolo wood
Memories of spending time outdoors with my grandparents at their house inspired this collection titled foundations. As a child, I spent countless hours playing around the fishpond, running through the gardens, and napping under the walnut trees. This collection provides glimpses of those experiences and interactions using my own aesthetic of portraying familiar, natural forms through an often-unexpected geometric approach. Natural materials including semi-precious stones and cocobolo wood are highlighted adding a warmth and depth in this modern yet nostalgic collection.
