Introducing Sun and Life
This collection is one of my favorites and incorporates ideas about the cycle of life. Specifically, I imagined a pastoral landscape ruled by the sun, the moon, golden pastures, the growing of plants and food. I tried to make different versions of the sun in the pendants and even create the glint of a sun ray on a blade of grass. I also wanted to acknowledge the hand of the farmer (or worker), so I did a lot of weaving and roping on the necklaces. Sun and Life is an idyllic nod to the past when doing hard work in the country was beautiful and rewarding.
