I hope you'll make this transition with me.

I'm currently working on a project proposal, that would allow me to focus on making a series of neckpieces that would highlight the flotsam and jetsam washed up on Rhode Islands beaches. I'll be focusing on Rhode Islands top five beaches that gross the most amount of trash, rearranging the detritus and making laser-cut neckpieces of the silhouettes.
Here's a work in progress:

I'm beginning to work on a new project, which I'm calling Flotsam & Jetsam. This project will focus on trash collected from the five most polluted beaches in Rhode Island. This cache is from the South Kingstown town beach, and has some particularly colorful bits of detritus. I found a shoe, sunglasses, lobster pot bits, ropes, bottle caps, shell cartridges, wire, and a glove.
I'll be using these materials to create adornment from. Although the finished product won't incorporate this source material, I really love the saturated colors and patterns created by teh trash. Consider this an appetizer, as I'll be posting more images of the project as it develops.

Turns out that my work made the cover story! Check out the two images below that I was able to pull from a GIF that Vogue Italia made as a preview for the issue.
I love how bright, saturated, and glossy all the images are. Very candy shoppe meets Priscilla Queen of the Desert. I can already tell that I want to frame every image and hang them on my walls for inspiration!
My knuckle dusters are going to be in this months Vogue Italia magazine! So, if you see this amazingly overthetop cover on news stands, buy it! I'm honored to be included in this publication, especially considering the theme. I can't wait to see which story my work ends up in... It would be amazing if it were on Joan Smalls! Just look at how amazing her nails are!

This video is kind of embarrassingly accurate in that it nails people perceptions of what a 'jeweler' is. Oh, how strikingly different things are in my studio from what this video depicts! But, it's still pretty funny... enjoy!

The new studio space is in progress! I can't wait to have it workable! So many boxes to unpack, shelves to hang, and tools to set up. Also, check out that huge clivia plant that I got from a friend... beautiful! And, I'm sure you'll agree that the color is a drastic improvement!
