TZU-JU I Providence, Rhode Island
Ashore, 2018

sterling silver, pearls, found coral, and stainless steel

I create these small worlds of underwater ruins by combining architectural elements and organic oceanic material from my travels. By integrating precious metal and turning these pieces into jewelry, I elevate the unassuming nature of found material into objects with personal meaning. The time worn marks and sun-bleached colors of the found materials provide palettes and directions for the finished work. This series is about the reconciliation between adulthood and childhood- the accumulative experience that shapes a person, connecting our learned knowledge with the intrinsic joy of day-to-day discovery.

Pricing is the sale price of the piece ONLY and does not include taxes and shipping costs. Shipping costs will be determined in consultation with the artist.
