In person, this is even tinier and more delicate than I realized. Lovely work from Alicia as always. If I wasn't so scared that my baby will tear it off my neck, I'd be wearing it constantly.

About

Layered Meanings

My work is often presented as collections with overarching themes—often holding stories of myth and magic, symbols, motifs found in nature and in life, the moon and stars, or the elements.

I love layered meanings. I seek to offer inspired treasures that are distinctive and eye-catching on the surface, but can also offer a deeper personal meaning, even if it's as simple as a connection with a certain legend from childhood stories. I love observing the ebb and flow of the year and its seasons. I love the rise and fall of light between summer and winter. These things add a touch of magic to my life and, in turn, I pour that into my creations.

I am a fine artist turned graphic designer and jewelry artist. I have been creating jewelry in some form or another since 2005 and Elements & Artifacts is entirely run by yours truly. I am mostly self-taught but own a vast library of giant jewelry textbooks which serve as reference (and the occasional sanity-check) for the more advanced techniques.

Flowing between art, design, and jewelry is a strange creature but each one lends itself to the others to create one unified picture. I also do contemporary dance and ballet; dancing fuels my art and art fuels my dancing. The bottom line is that I create. I communicate in shapes and colors and textures and lines rather than in words.

This is my heart and soul, an ongoing visual timeline of my thoughts and inspirations. I hope my creations bring you a touch of beauty and joy.

    I create. No matter the form of art—design, illustration, jewelry, contemporary dance—I communicate in shapes and colors and lines rather than words. There are so many stories to be told, and I am both listening and seeking ways to share them.
