Mother and Child

February 2008
Sterling silver

This abstract pendant shows a mother with a child nestled in her embrace. The fact that the two figures are made from the same piece of domed wire emphasizes the close tie between the two, and lends a tangible umbilical quality to the connection.

The pendant is also a great example of using all available materials to pursue one's craft, even away from the workbench—the original maquette for this piece was made from a twist tie.
