Preview of Natural History Imagery

I’ve been spending a lot of time in my studio getting ready for my upcoming show, Natural History, at AS220 in November. It’s been a lot of fun working on a new body of work, and I also had the luck to work with a super talented photographer, Jayna Aronovitch, on the accompanying images. Jayna was amazing! She was able to read my mind and create the kind of rich, saturated, transcendental images that I was looking for. I cannot wait to see these images printed out to large format – the jewelry is going to be life size!

Enjoy this sneak peak, and I’ll see you at the opening on Saturday, November 1st from 5-7pm at the AS220 Project Space, 93 Matthewson Street, Providence, RI.Molly3WEB

Plumage

I wanted to take a minute to share a detail of a necklace that I’m on the verge of finishing. It’s a shorter chain than what I’ve been previously creating, and is also a lot fuller. The color scheme gradates from front to back, combining handmade horse hair tassels with a variety of exotic feathers. This piece is part of a body of work that will be featured in an upcoming solo show, Natural History. I am so completely in love with this neckpiece, and can’t wait to take it for a test run!
