Pieces of My Heart

Pieces of My Heart, 2006

Pieces of My Heart was originally created as part of a school project. The assignment was to create four pieces, utilizing hollow "beads" or forms. The first piece should be whole, the second piece altered once, the third piece altered twice, and the fourth piece altered three times. Pieces of My Heart, needless to say, was the fourth piece of the series. Because it was so different from the others, I created a chain specifically for it that would carry the aesthetic through the necklace.

I also created hangers for each piece that could be nailed into a wall to hang the necklaces on for exhibitions or as art objects when not being worn (above).

This necklace has been hanging from a bust in my house for a number of years, and has now found a new home. I'm somewhat sad to see it go, but excited for it to find a new place in the world.

You can find my other jewelry in my Etsy shop.
