Shortly before I made the paintings shown on this site, I studied jewelry making. After about a year of study, inspired by my incredibly talented teacher Rebekah Laskin and thinking about becoming a “one of a kind” jewelry maker, I suddenly veered off into spending my free time working on a hanging wall piece of small gauge copper and light layers of enamel. I based this piece off a colored pencil drawing I made, and divided into a grid pattern. I think this project put jewelry making behind me for good – I accepted the “uselessness” of the kind of work I wanted to do. You can find this project here.
