The beauty and the beast; Hardware plus; Signs & sights

BMore (short for Baltimore) is a body of work about Baltimore. It consists of three visual anecdotes in jewelry form:

  • The Beauty and the Beast: Like Baltimore, the blue crab, on first sight, looks aggressive and ugly. And still, beauty can be found.
  • Hardware Plus: The Beauty in the ordinary, jewelry made from hardware & enamel, named in honor of a shop on Pennsylvania Avenue.
  • Signs & Sights made from photos taken in Baltimore. The signs on the street, are not graffiti point to the infrastructure below the city.
