Bracelet. Sterling silver, bronze, original illustration.
"Like Oberon'smeadowshergarden is
Drowsy from dawn to dusk with bees–
And all she has is all she needs–
A poor Old Widow in her weeds."
– Walter de la Mare
This fanciful story bracelet depicts a moment from Walter de la Mare's children's book, Peacock Pie. It is one of a kind, hand etched with storybook thorns, swirling sky and handwritten text. The luminous, bronze diorama is crowned with a solid sterling silver bumble bee, ready to take flight.

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.
