I'm here to get the word out about my designs... I create jewelry and clothing with a purpose! I am a Metalsmith that creates Custom designed Metal Corsetry, Jewelry, and matching skirts with metal elements - not something you find... The Corsets come in 4 separate pieces, so they fit most people. They are held together by metal reinforced ribbon, and lined with cloth for comfort (can be worn for hours at a time, and are just as comfortable as a normal corset). I am in the process of making more outfits, and as soon as they are done... I will have more photos to come!
My artwork is riddled with symbolism and hidden meanings all while serving a purpose. Every motif or series holds a universal expression, and it must tell the reader a story while serving a function. The majority of my influences stem from ancient cultures that were not only connected to nature, but who also took pride in their craftsmanship. They knew something most contemporary humans do not, quality not quantity. Life it seems, was much simpler then. Mass production was not a factor, and at the time, jewelry items were created using traditional methods. All items of adornment revolved around realities, legends, and myths. By creating superstitions around these fabrications, they would transform wearable items into psychological entities. Their jewelry and clothing affected their thought patterns and behavior, as well as reflected in their rituals. My passion is to merge and integrate these old meanings with our modern time. I have made it my mission to research an ancient spirituality that has been lost to most of us for a long time... By valuing modesty and kindness, I have devoted myself to society by using my art as an influence. It is my hope to create a sort of revolution; that one day my work may pull every one of us down to Earth. I Feel the further we stray from nature; the more our civilization will crumble as we strive for something to believe in. Within these fallen crumbs lies a message; one may doubt a higher power, but energy will always exist.
