— It starts with a raw spool of wire. The wire is hand spun into a coil. The coil is hand cut into individual links that are "woven" into chain, one by one. The chain is oxidized and burnished to a warm patina. Ancient artifacts and techniques inspire my work and process. The chains are bold in scale, substantial without being heavy. Each element is considered for scale, weight, the way they hang, drape and mold to the body. —
