About this Exhibitor / Bio: 

I utilize a variety of materials including sterling silver, brass, reclaimed wood, and textile to create sculptural jewelry.  I explore themes of architecture, structural disintegration, and decay through use of surface treatments such as painting, burning, scratching, mark making, and stitching.
