Why I Make Jewelry

Periodically, I get asked why I make jewelry. That’s not a simple question. The answer is many-faceted. (Get it, ‘faceted’? Well, I thought it was funny.) Let me try to explain.

Jewelry As Art

We’ve all heard the saying “Art Imitates Life.” I think that’s a very true statement no matter what the art or what the medium. All art is really from nature and so as artists we’re really just trying to imitating the handiwork of God, the original artist.

Impressions

This ring is special to me for a lot of reasons. I was prevailed to be one of the first ‘complex’ metal projects for Step by Step Wire Magazine. They’re now defunct – I hope it wasn’t me…

Stuff vs. Meaning

I wear a lot of jewelry, a lot of the time. I’ve made every piece I wear (except my wedding ring) and each piece has its own meaning to me. I always wear the second ring I ever made. Why? Because I made it for me, because I wanted a silver and turquoise ring and after making the first one, I discovered I could make one that I would wear. It symbolizes to me that I can do this, I can make something that measures up.
