I strive to design jewelry that is well made, lightweight and colorful to wear. The elements of my pendants and rings are clean and simple, resin and wood, but the combinations of color, shape and form are endless. The resin, coupled with the raw edge of burl wood, renders pieces that are reminiscent of miniature landscapes. I hope my pieces of resin art truly capture the materials versatility.
After exploring various art forms, including glass and marble mosaics, oil and watercolor painting, I recently discovered the uniqueness and versatility of working with epoxy resins. It has been fascinating to witness this viscous liquid transform, in front of my eyes, as colored dyes are added, it's molded with various types of wood burl, and then cures into a translucent solid. Each piece is unique, and every slice of wood reveals a one-of-a-kind wood grain pattern. In addition to making jewelry, this process has propelled me to explore other creative and whimsical ways to incorporate resin into dioramas and sculpture.
