“Gems and Loop Necklace”; brass, powdercoat, mylon thread, leather

My current series of work, Gems, Loops and Tassels, is inspired by contrasts saturated color of vintage costume jewelry paired with shifts in surface and material. Powder coated geometric brass shapes are bent and formed to create faceted planes that bring to mind the abstract surface of sparkling gemstones. Leather, plastics, glass, and thread create visual and tactile textures dangling and looping from each unique gem.
