In this series Natural Adornment, I collected precious natural objects and set them in context of traditional value through the metaphor of jewelry. Within each piece, elements of nature and the handiwork of man, work in conjunction, to simply adorn each other. Highlighting the intrinsic value of our environment by creating Natural Adornments which are elemental and luxurious.  

 

I find the value of these Natural Adornments not in their permanence. Setting ephemeral items into a traditional context of cultural value, these miniature monoliths give form to a desired but sensitive environment in a dialogue between sustaining life for all and a few living comfortably.
