Femme, Spring 2018
I have been eternally inspired by the works of American artist Alexander Calder and was thrilled to find that not only did he make the most beautiful sculptures, but also constructed over 2,000 pieces of jewelry throughout his career, giving them as gifts for his friends and family through his life. Calder's techniques are the same as my own, relying solely a hammer, a drill, and using only cold connections to construct his works. I was particularly struck by his heavy handed approach to forging, which informed the direction that I took for S18 and something you will undoubtably see in collections to come.
