My current work explores decay and preservation as it relates to death and dying. There is a perceived need to preserve something tangible from something meant to decay naturally. This preservation serves to guard off both the decay of the body and that of memory. I create tangible objects that address these ideas through their physical relationship to the body and through my choice of both traditional and alternative jewelry materials.
