I started out making test pieces and smaller components to go into larger, 3d paintings. I was also looking to perfect my casting and finishing techniques with the epoxy material. The next thing I knew I was buying gemstones, making chain maille and learning how to fuse glass in my microwave. I'm not trained as a jeweler, but I am an artist who loves using the body as a canvas. These truly are tiny pieces of art you get to wear. And why not? Why limit art to walls or podiums? Wouldn't it be great to be a walking gallery?
Pieces are fun and colorful. I wear test them to make sure they do not scratch, tickle, or weigh too much. The epoxy I use is actually a nut-based eco-poxy (so I don't poison myself making this stuff). See more (a lot more!) pieces and more images on my Etsy page.
