Artist Statement
This line of jewelry, which is inspired by architecture, is hand-fabricated and cast using sterling silver, pearls, hematite, and epoxy resins. It was my goal to create an interesting, affordable line of jewelry with an overall appeal.

The pearls are freshwater cultured, and the color is obtained by heat-treatment. Pearl colors available are white, green, peacock, pink, silver/grey, peach, copper, red, navy blue, and a fuchsia tone.
