The time has come for me to combine my love of photography and my love of jewelry. I've always appreciated them both as art forms, each allowing me to free my creative spirit...

In this series of necklaces, I'm documenting all the ruin I see in my community and transforming the imagery into wearable art. I want these pieces to reflect the idea that because something is dirty, forgotten, and forlorn it does not mean it is purposeless. Each necklace is wearable, functional in its own rights, and thats the message I want to reflect upon my community. Just because we're a little rough around the edges, doesn't mean we can't thrive and do great and wonderful things.
