Using jewelry as my format, I intend to make notion of death an idea of beauty and a tangible object to be worn on one’s outer layer.   I use my memories with nature as a child as a material source. It is important that the flowers and silhouettes that I use are significant to me.   This early timeframe of childhood was one of not really understanding what death means.  I acknowledged that I was supposed to be sad after I buried a small little mole that I found at the edge of the woods. But now I know what grief feels and looks like. I understand we all carry these moments of sorrow in our inner layers of our being.
