Combining traditional metal fabricating techniques like piercing, stamping, and etching, these earrings are part of my Ark Collection of iconic-silhouetted images designed as earrings, necklaces and charm bracelets. These timeless shapes are inspired by the animal characters found in cultural mythologies the world over, and tell stories of how hope, strength and virtue tie us to a greater universal purpose. Expressing big ideas, aspirations, and values, through deeply rooted symbolism, the idea of Ark is to combine ornament with storytelling.
