Metalwerx Artists, including ShingJewels, are exhibiting at Lincoln Studios, 289 Moody St. for Open Studios weekend.
Welcome to ShingJewels. I enjoy every step of fabricating jewelry. Each new roll of wire, tube, or flat sheet of metal challenges my mind to cut, shape, smooth, embellish, oxidize and produce a “structure” that is delicate, geometric and textural. As I hone my skills as a metalsmith, the quality and properties of metals simply fascinate me.
We wear jewelry as an expression of creativity using the canvas of our own bodies and I’m honored that the wearers of my work have allowed me to be their collaborator.
These images are a selection of my work, the full catalog is found at www.shingjewels.com.
