Stargazers have for millennia mapped their own experiences and traditional characters onto the constellations, hoping to bring some human scale to the vast universe. Long after so many mysteries have been resolved, we still feel the ancient seasonal rhythms and use the familiar names of those timeless figures.
My Constellation Series presents stylized representations of astronomical charts and cosmological bodies. The etched designs are inspired by the work of contemporary and historical astronomers, and are crafted in sterling silver, with each piece hand made at my jeweler’s bench. The silver is highly polished, and the etched imagery is oxidized for a subtle contrast. My convex and concaved surfaces evoke the enveloping sweep of the night sky.
