I love books! So much so that I also do bookbinding to create new books and deconstruct old books to make sculpture. I have a lot of cross sections of an old dictionaries and encyclopedias as well as random pieces of paper in my studio. I love the way the old pages make abstract shapes and structures.
I’m experimenting with ways to incorporate paper into my jewelry. I enjoy the contrast of the hard steel with fragile paper. My goal and vision is to sneak in paper in a visual and subtle way that challenges the wearer and the viewer how to read a book in a different way.
