Appearance is a powerful communication tool, connecting the individual to brands and styles. Each curated item added to the body and choice to transform the body is an effort to visually represent identity. To create dialogue about visual identity, I make jewelry as it inherently addresses the body. Often, the body is my material as well as my plinth. For example, I re-use hair that was shed from the body to adorn the body in a new way. Hair is a valuable asset, however when separate from the body, hair is repulsive. I question why this is, and how identity changes with or without hair.
