The flora series was born from my love of the natural, botanical world and my concern over the increasing lack of care for the environment. I seek to remind the wearer of the beauty in nature and it’s inevitable fragility. I enjoy incorporating organic elements into my art and while working with these materials, I explore ways to integrate the natural and modern worlds, combining elements into a finished piece; making it wearable art. I’m intrigued with blurring the line between jewelry and sculpture, functional and nonfunctional art. To me these boundaries are as fine as the pieces themselves.
