Insects and Arthropods
Of all my jewelry work, my articulated insects are some of my favorite pieces to make. They are made of sterling silver and bronze and are created by the repousee method. The process of creating the movement is extremely time consuming as each piece may have articulated legs, wings, and/or head. As a teen I had considered a career in Entomology (study of insects), however my right brain took over and I pursued a career in art. I have always held an interest and passion for insects. The result is this collection of unique jewelry.
