I have always considered my jewelry to be first and foremost mixed-media, and this statement earring design feels very true to that. While my work has turned largely to metalwork, I am still very much drawn to assemblage and arrangement–only now I tend to make all of the components involved. These hollow, low dome posts anchor the long dangles, made of tubes and disc-shaped marble, which I have woven together with peach nylon cord. I'm utterly thrilled by how they turned out.
