"This is the first collection of earrings that has been directly inspired by my tufted pieces. For this new collection I wanted to resemble the different textures and layers that go into the tufting process. Through the use of laser-cut plexiglass, I was able to re-create some of these fiber-like textures by engraving, painting and layering colored acrylic. These shapes are inspired by sea creatures such as oysters, shells, fish, anemones and many of Georgia O’Keeffe’s flower studies. My intention with this collection is to start a conversation between two different languages that have been re-occurring in my artistic practice; tufting and laser-cutting. All of the studs in the earrings are made of plated gold brass and it is a limited edition collection, meaning there is only a few pairs available for each design."
