Mokume Bangle (Shaman Series).Silver and mokume. 2009.
In Her Image is an art jewelry series created for my Master of Fine Arts thesis. This collection explores some of the various, timeless female archetypes found across a variety of cultures. Over and over again these personas are used in myth, religion, story, art, etc. to perpetuate and convey the expected patterns of female behavior and classification. Coupled with their persistent presence, their relatable qualities create a desire to emulate their image. Whether this desire stems from a want to be seen as greater than the self, or a need to outwardly express an aspect of the inner self, everyone has at one point or another adorned themselves with these very recognizable characteristics. In Her Image is a display of these archetypal adornments through neck pieces and accompanying accessories.
Collection currently available for purchase and exhibition requests. Please contact via email:
