Beck's Profile

About

My work is inspired by place and a desire to reuse and re-envision materials for new purposes. I want to express the importance of memories of place in my work. In order to recall memories of place I began to make buttons and button jewelry using old map, locating cities, streets, and sites that engage memories. I am also inspired by upcycled materials, using books, old game pieces, guitar picks, and other materials to make jewelry that helps people think about specific times, places, or people. I hope that my jewelry helps you to remember and recall places you long to be in, enjoy spending time in, memories of friends or experiences, or recollections that make you smile.
