This image is a new ring. The first in a series of one of a kind rings. It is enamel, silver, and copper.
Working on some enameling lately. This is in my “Tempe” series based on cacti I found at the Tempe Botanical Gardens.
Two new cuffs.
I have been on a cuff kick lately. Two new designs I just rolled out on Etsy.
Bravo’s Work of Art Episode 5: Ripped from the Headlines
Premiere: November 9, 2011
The artists must create a piece of art that illustrates a headline which strikes a cord with them.
Headline: Airport scanners that ‘strip’ passengers naked are banned over fears they cause cancer
EU introduces ban while danger of X-ray machines is fully assessed
Yup. These are the scanners that we go through regularly here in the states. Comforting. I read this and immediately had a personal connection to the story. My husband flies several times a month for work. He hates these things. He almost missed a flight to a business meeting because he was arguing with the TSA agent about his choice to get scanned or groped. I hate that the safety of the radiation level is still undetermined and my husband goes through a machine up to eight times a month!
I thought that cuffs were appropriate. I thought of cuffs as actually being a symbol with dual meanings. First, as a symbol of the helplessness I feel when I travel to have to be put through something that I absolutely do not believe in. And, second, as a symbol of strength (like Wonder Woman) to endure and fight back.
