Totemic Necklaces ~ Iconic Animal Inspired Jewelry

August 31, 2013 § 1 Comment

I have been spending a lot of time thinking about totemic animal jewelry, and crafting new necklace designs for fall! The inspiration for my handcrafted jewelry and accessories comes from thinking about the role of cultural narrative in constructing identity. My process is to create narratives for my work that intertwine ideas about mythology and tradition, creating a collection of animal jewelry was a natural evolution of this exploration, because animals play key roles in many culture’s creation myths where they are essential to survival, are respected as equals and are meaningful representations of human potential.
