This series of work is a study of the human form as both site and subject for body adornment. The figure historically has been a popular motif in jewelry, particularly in carved relief cameos and engraved intaglios. Although a popularly held image of the cameo is that of an idealized woman’s profile, the cameo has varied over time and cultures. I am interested visiting the cameo in my own work, interpreting this historical jewelry object in contemporary forms, colors, and materials.
