Announcement   Aubergine is {was} my Pug dog // and i am Laurie!

finally, finally! i have a shop in my very own name. you'll be able to find my ONE OF A KIND jewels there:
http://www.etsy.com/shop/LaurieBrownjewelry


•••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••••

my work is inspired by the idea that all of the objects i cast from once had a LIFE ~ and i love to daydream about where that may have been, or what it MUST have been like . . .

i am also fascinated with all animals and their talismanic attributes. my hope in making these pieces is to inspire the wearer to bring forth characteristics {of animals} they may already have and hope to strengthen, or better yet, strive to attain. it is long believed that by wearing animal teeth, claws and bones the spirit of the animal is transferred to the wearer, thus the animals energy&spirit can be kept alive forever . . . it is also well known that many non-western and american tribal cultures believe that the spirit of an animal can be forever honored and carried forth into perpetuity when it's talisman is worn by a human counterpart. therefore, i feel that these pieces are as much a piece of history as they are art. i still marvel at the beauty of the tiniest bird femur, or the pygmy seahorse, and the lion's claw, each time i find and cast a new piece!

my intent in making these pieces is to honor life&spirit! i have the utmost of respect for the animals i am casting from, and only use the most ethically collected bones, claws, teeth ~ and metals as well
