Bracelet. Sterling silver, moonstone, original poem.
My goal in creating this piece was to build a wearable poem; to visually interpret my poem North for Geese which follows me as I become willingly lost in a suburban neighborhood at dusk. The poem explores how, even though we might feel invisible to the world, the love of one person can make us feel like a beautiful colossus.
The textures on the surface of the bracelet reflect the rhythm of footsteps, fences, and sidewalks. The delicate surface texture is at once luminous and luxurious, controlled and chaotic.
The final stanza of the poem regards the moon, which is represented on the piece in an asymmetrically set gray rose cut moonstone. The poem is etched in its entirety on the inside of the bracelet. Read the North for Geese on my blog here.Looking for something even more unique? Contact me to design a custom piece just for you.

I often use found photos and family ephemera to invent stories and fictional eulogies; I write verse and combine enameling and other techniques to forge those stories in metal. This piece is “Chapter One” of a set of three bracelets wherein a young man is leaving home for war.
