About a year ago, I was asked to participate in a book that fellow jeweler, Heather Skowood, was writing about jewelry made from found objects. Obviously, I was flattered to be a part of Heathers’ project, which focuses on the use of found objects, and recycled or reclaimed materials in jewelry. The book includes work by a grouping of amazing international artists whose work supports the books topic, and I have some work included from my RISD thesis show. In addition to being a curated collection of work, the book also features some how-to projects as well.
The book is due to be released from the publisher on March 11th, which is just around the corner! But, if you can’t wait that long, Jewelry From Found Objects is already available for presale on Amazon in the States and the UK. I can’t wait to check out the end result, and am excited for Heather’s accomplishment!
