New Work (In Progress) | Crack the Sky a Lightning Series

I’ve been really inspired lately.  After months spent questioning what was next and spending an almost unhealthy amount of time in my head; one morning I went into the garage and refreshed my corner studio.  It took me some time to remember that I would need to create an environment that aided to my creative experiments – if not encourage them.  Once I completed my studio refresh, I immediately felt good – I sat down, smiled and felt safe –  I made a little cocoon of exploration for myself.

Later, I began rummaging through old experiments and came across a brass domed object that I had made a few months back. On it, I cut out a crack with very fine tail lines.  I loved this piece; one of my favorite “riffs” that I had yet to figured out its’ place.  But it inspired me nonetheless.  After staring at if or a while, my thought went back to a couple of photos I had taken of lightning strikes on concrete.  I began visualizing those strikes translated onto metal.  Allowing my mind and hands to playing; slowly, my thoughts began to take form.  I felt tingles inside my body (when I feel tingles they are usual a sign that I am on the right track), I was getting excited!

The excitement of curiosity is fueling me  – and I feel must continue to explore and act on this idea before it fleets.  I am still building this series, but if you have any inquires please contact me directly!

It’s been a while since I posted anything in this little corner of my site and today I had a just the nudge I needed to put my hands to the keyboard!  My Parallel Fold Stacking rings were featured on Darling Magazines blog post; “Products We Love Vol. 7”!  And here is what they had to say about them:

Why we love it:  Summer is synonymous with minimal, which is why we love these dainty rings that can be worn independently or as a trio. Made from 100% recycled Sterling Silver, each ring is adorned with a subtle 1/8 inch silver fold and sets have variations of vertical and horizontal folds. Even if you can’t feel cool this summer, you can certainly look it.” – Darling Magazine

I truly feel that most contemporary jewelry can be worn with just about any genera of fashion.  And I love when my minimal unisex pieces are paired with feminine dainty wears.  I may have a particular idea of how my work is worn but it does not mean you have to wear it that way.  So “thank you” to the gals over at Darling for giving my modern metal a place in their darling world!
