Its been a busy time here at my Eastport studio & showroom, not only am I creating one of a kind pieces for some amazing clients, I am also very excited to be preparing for my exhibit, Sentiment & Splendor, at The Tides Institute and Museum of Art!
This necklace, made from molded black concrete, is part of a body of work titled The Weight of the Heavenly Garden in the Plane of Existence, which is an ode to the Jet jewelry so ubiquitous in the Victorian era. It is the biggest piece of jewelry I have ever made! Beyond its obvious sculptural material and appearance, I designed the piece to be worn-though only for a short time, as it weighs almost 20 pounds!
Sentiment & Splendor runs from August 21-September 13, 2015 at The Tides Institute and Museum of Art, 43 Water Street, Eastport, Maine. Opening reception and artist talk Friday, August 21, 4-7pm.
