Collection Preview: We Were All Ghosts




My next collection, We Were All Ghosts, depicts dreamlike scenes of lost souls as they linger, ponder, and observe their surroundings. Set in glowing brass and inscribed with handwritten journal excerpts, each piece calls us to consider our existence. 

The small, six-piece collection will be released in June of 2021. Sign up for my email list to receive notification when the pieces are available, and follow the progress of the collection on Instagram.   

⁣These pieces were inspired by a strange encounter: While walking alone in a dense fog, I realized I was among a herd of deer; they didn't seem to see or fear me, which filled me with the odd sensation that I might be a ghost. Each ring and necklace in the collection is inscribed with fragments of the journal I wrote about the experience:   

"It had snowed in early Spring, and a warm snap caused a cloak of mist to settle among the trees. I walked in the heavy air, so dense it made my breath sound like that of a stranger. I was grieving, and the stillness was a salve. Moving shapes emerged and I found myself among a herd of deer; they slipped around me on invisible legs, horns soft as wings against the swirling ether. I held my breath. They paid me no mind. I wondered if we were ghosts."
