 Artist Statement

My jewelry explores ideas about gender, labor, and sustainability, employing materials derived from domestic and industrial textile and plastic waste. The wearable objects I make are rooted in the traditions of goldsmithing and textile techniques traditionally associated with women’s work. Formally, my practice references the products of these two disciplines, such as jewelry, regalia, quilts and pin cushions. Through the meditative process of hand sewing, I can transform materials, just as the act of wearing jewelry can transform an individual. Although my materials have little or no intrinsic value, the time-consuming sewing techniques I have developed from English Paper Piecing patchwork and hand quilting diverts waste from landfill, creating wearable objects with new meaning and value.
