About the Artist
A childhood love of art followed by a growing up life of detours, adventures and misadventures brings me full circle with a return to creating art.
I love to use repurposed, reclaimed, recycled pieces..."bits" that have a story and an energy of their own...a graphite covered ruler that has been used over and over bears the energy of a struggle to learn, to get the numbers right..."to measure up". A subway token that has passed through countless hands and is witness to many travels and emotions...was it in someone's pocket as they turned it round and round contemplating their next stop in life? A daily routine? An adventure? The juxtaposition of mixing the old with the new...a worn wing nut and a shiny gemstone...the utilitarian with an object of beauty helps to add a message or a story to each piece of jewelry. My own energy is added as I turn the bits round and round-add them-take them off- add them again and rearrange them until I have achieved symmetry.
Positive messages and the power of positive thinking are laced through the pieces using "bits". The bits are symbolic of life's journey, our human/spiritual self and the duality of our uniqueness and our sameness to others. The jewelry serves to remind us of the power of our thoughts and beliefs and the mind/body connection. As we wear these pieces we are adding our own energy to them...layer upon layer, connecting us all.
*Many of my pieces contain bits of Silly Billy's Green Belt* (SBGB*). This magic belt has been used to save two lives including the time it pulled a stranded hang glider to safety. After it outlived it's usefulness as a belt, Bill cut it into pieces and gave them to his friends as a protection talisman. Imbedded in some of the charms are threads from the belt ... a talisman to help keep you safe.
