My work is about the tension between structure and sensuality. I am interested in framing female identity through the lens of beauty, control, dignity, strength and vulnerability. By building simple structural units into complex sculptural forms, organic shapes give way to fortified architectural systems. Steel wire is used as basic material, a continuous line of wire is shaped into interpenetrating forms. As multiple units complete a perfect structure, the whole becomes animated and my jewelry comes to life.
The human body is the perfect context for my three-dimensional forms. Only when the body ornaments are perfectly installed on the wearer, does an emotional and structural rapport begin. As people imagine building an ideal house of their own, I also imagine building my house of jewelry on the human body.
