Texture & Patina
I create themes for my art jewelry and surface patterns designs. This helps me direct my focus and explore materials and techniques I might never have explored otherwise. For me, working within a theme is about "Constraining to Expand." While I occasionally repeat specific designs (such as the twig series or bon-bon series), I must prefer to work in a series. The designs in this collection are the jewelry and items that I created directly as a result of the Texture & Patina theme.
