As an artist working with adornment, I am particularly interested in the relationship between object and wearer. In my jewelry I explore the creation of self-awareness and the formation of intimate physical understandings of the body.

body in motion: tracers pushes this series further by visualizing the trajectory of the movements we make with the jewelry we wear. The constant alignment of the bracelet or ring with the wearer's every move engages the wearer as an active participant.
