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 my poem North for Geese in its entirety on my blog.

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.
