Stories of time and memory are often represented in my work. People give me parts (that I reuse and rehash) and tell me a story of when or where or why they came by them. The shells were a part of a very well worn and loved necklace purchased in the 90s. Memories of summer and outings are set inside these forms.
Everything including the aventurine beads has had another life as something else. I wanted to capture the flow and movement of change and summer in this design.
