This week in between finishing up more custom orders, and scrambling to complete work for an upcoming holiday show, I managed to (miraculously!) squeeze in some play time. I did some sketching of new ideas, and playing with arrangements for a larger quote bubble piece I've been imagining…

My Plastic Body Series art jewelry collection is made from salvaged Barbie doll parts in combination with hand-fabricated sterling silver and resins. My work examines and celebrates our relationship with the icon known simply as: Barbie.
I've been creating work in this collection for over 15 years. My jewelry is sold across the US and internationally and is sought after by art jewelry collectors, Barbie nostalgics, and bold individuals alike. The Plastic Body Series has been published in numerous books and has garnered international press coverage in the worldʼs top Art, fashion and design magazines.
