Triumph at the Studio

It seems like I have been waging war with myself at the studio these days, so I am very glad to have finally resolved this neckpiece! There were many times during the constructin of this piece, that I thought it would never end... and if it did, the ultimate result would not be a good one. This piece is made out of rubber gloves, sterling silver, and baroque pearls. I found the rubber gloves at a hardware store in England, and bought six pairs! They are the most beautiful rubber gloves that I have ever seen. Not only is the color is amazing, but the interior has an antibacterial coating which not only smells like
synthetic flowers, but also has a beautiful green tint to it which really adds a little depth to the piece.

My work has been featured on the Crafthaus website. Crafthaus is a online community that caters to contemporary craft artists. It's a great website, because it provides a place for designers and craftspeople to communicate and promote the field of contemporty craft. Crafthaus was created by art advocate, Brigitte Martin, of the Pittsburg gallery, Luke & Eloy.
