A common problem for most artists (most creative people in general I'm sure!!) is that we have more ideas in our head than we ever have time to execute.
For years now, I've been playing around with the idea of creating a line of "message" jewelry. With the current political climate, now more than ever I think it's important to be loud and proud about not just the things we enjoy, but the ideals we care about deeply.
With that in mind, I finally began working on a line of message jewelry.
I wanted the line to contain messages that motivate, that bring peace and that make you smile.
To make these pieces, first, I sketched out each design: experimenting with fonts and playing with layouts. Then I worked with a graphic designer to turn my chicken scratch into something legible. With the help of my ridiculously gifted friend Amber, we etched out the final designs onto sheets of brass. Once the design was etched, I used a disc cutter to cut out each piece. From there, the piece gets cleaned, blackened (to make the design pop) and lightly polished.
I'll be making these new designs available for purchase on my website soon. To find out when they will be released, join our email list (link in the footer of this page)
And keep checking the website for more of these sassy, smart ass, fearless message jewelry -- because my brain isn't slowing down anytime soon!
