The External Organs Series 

 


Through this series, I am looking at the relationship that exists between jewelry and the body, drawing attention to the connection between the two, while also disrupting the expected patterns that exist there. In order to do this I am taking forms that exist on the interior of the body and putting them onto the exterior of the body as adornment. 

Project materials/techniques:  Copper, steel (welded), sterling silver, resin, powdercoating, electroforming, experimental materials
