"When I started designing jewelry 10 years ago, I was drawn to the hoop earring shape and re-imagined it using continuous, intersecting lines. I focused on continuity as a key theme because of my interest in continuous personal growth and that growth is a never-ending process. I created a design whereby one could not tell where the lines began or ended. I pursued this design initially through craft wire. While taking weekend classes at the Jewelry Arts Institute in New York City in 2012, I refined the design, eventually learning how to solder metals. I recreated the continuous loop effect by layering the metals, soldering or fusing as I went. The essence of continuous movement is not lost in the integration of 3D printing into my process. As a person who loves all kinds of jewelry adornment, I want to give wearers pieces that are distinctive, that can be easily enveloped within one’s personal style, and that are comfortable and lightweight.
Continuous. Begin where you end."
