 Artist Statement

Mica is a fascinating material; fragile looking yet flexible, flashy and lightweight, it's an excellent material for making jewelry. It plays well with metal, darkened silver helping to highlight the transparency of the mineral. Other gemstones bring in a splash of color, or a contrasting texture. When worn, my earrings become more than mere adornments. They become talismans of reverence: for the natural world and the geologic processes that create these materials ultimately sustain life.
