How do you weigh what techniques and materials you will use?
It has been eight years since I stopped using gold or silver to make my jewelry. In 2006 I decided to explore color more fully and began working exclusively in steel covered with auto paints. The materials and processes I use in making work have always been concept driven. As a student in the 70s metal was a very small aspect of the jewelry I made. Fabric, thread, leather, resin, glass, shell, paint, accounted for 80% of any given artwork.
