Past training as an athlete has driven me to reach for the unattainable goal of flawlessness. This mentality, which I apply to jewelry making, has led me to recreate the intricate angles of the body as well as the beauty of its movements. The gymnastics imagery within my work can be seen as a tool to communicate how we learn and understand through practice and repetition. With shifted lines, skewed shapes and geometric wirework, the jewelry tumbles over the architecture of the body. The repetitive metal forms come together to simulate movement and enhance the physical language that a body in motion can suggest.
