    My project is a collection of metal and porcelain jewelry and objects composed of interchangeable parts. My work is minimal, bold in its simplicity, and inspired by the simple geometry found in nature. I aim to create future heirloom pieces that are materially and figuratively sustainable—special items to be handled with care, but can be recycled if so desired. I make all the items myself using mostly small-scale industrial mold-making techniques and applying traditional craft practices in conjunction with new technologies such as 3D printing. I believe strongly in transparency throughout the design and creative processes, so along with the collection I have an “internet-sketchbook.”
