Necklace. Enameled steel, original illustration, bronze, silver.
Fluke's Road, features my original, tiny enameled graphite drawings of the ubiquitous power lines and phone poles of my rural Ohio childhood. The illustrations are prong-set in bronze and clustered on a long, deeply oxidized silver chain with a bronze lost wax cast honey bee closure. I often include cast insects with my narrative jewelry, positioned as though they have escaped from within the pictorial vignettes.

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.
