Good or bad, memories are my most precious possession. I inject these remem- brances into every piece I create. My aim is to celebrate these moments through wearable adornment. The occasion then becomes a badge, both an honor and a reminder. I pull from imagery that is commonly recognizable by the children of my generation. These specific forms and colors are representations of my memories; reproducing them in metal adds a permanence that will last longer than myself. These memories can then be shared and passed on.
