My Spring 2020 collection was about the exploration of clay and how it could add a dimension to my bronze designs that would take the place of heavy stones. For Fall I took that vocabulary of shapes and began to see them not just as shapes, but as voids to be inlaid with clay. I wanted to add color and create the illusion of marble and stone but without the weight. My inspiration board was cluttered with images that ranged from Victorian Lava cameos to 2-dimensional abstract shapes. I am inspired by the use of historical techniques to create modern jewelry.
