One of the great creative loves of my life is writing poetry. Since I was a teen I tried to find ways to merge together my words and my visual art.

I've started a new series of silver bracelets and brooches that incorporate my poems – some incorporated in their entirety, and some featuring only certain stanzas. Here is a look at the work in progress for my poem North for Geese. The repeating lines and textures represent the fence and sidewalk that appear in the poem, and I will add more elements to it in the coming days. Though I've created a rough sketch for the design, I'm allowing a stream of consciousness flow to drive this piece, turning the verses in my mind as I ideate.

𝘊𝘩𝘢𝘳𝘪𝘵𝘺⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣Brooch in progress.⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣Vitreous enamel; hand painted, torch fired.⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣⁣ ⁣⁣⁣This is one of a series of art jewelry pieces incorporating dead, flightless, and falling birds. I designed these pieces to provoke a strong sense of compassion and charity; they are my response to a pervasive callousness, a call for empathy for others. ⁣
