Rhinoceros Tears, 2013
Copper, silver, enamel, charcoal, pearls

​​

In 1515, the King of Portugal, Manuel I,

gifted a Rhinoceros to Pope Leo X.

Near the journey’s end, off the coast of Italy,

the ship encountered a storm.

 

The Rhinoceros sank with the ship. The bones of the animal were raised after the wreckage.

Making Tracks, 2013

This trundling hand held devise marks tracks along whatever space the wearer would wish. This is a tongue-in-cheek necklace addressing humanity's need to draw lines accross our landscapes.  

Legs, 2013
Brass, mild steel, stainless steel 

​​

This brooch suggests the spindly legs of bugs suspended on the body to admire. The dangling segments attract to a magnet attached undeneath clothing, activating a tension through the wires that animates the work.
