dc.description2016 Spring.
dc.descriptionColorado State University Art and Art History Department capstone project.
dc.descriptionCapstone contains the artist's statement, a list of works, and images of works.
dc.description.abstractThe artist's statement: The work I do as an artist always has some deeper or hidden meaning. Whether it is obvious or not really depends on the piece. Some rely directly on text to hint at the meaning behind the piece. In others, the meaning may be represented by a stone, a shape or a number. I find that I become more invested in my work when it represents someone or something special to me. For example, "Love Your Sunshine" is a ring that I made for my mom. The ruby is being held by the silver -- it is being hugged by it, just like my mom hugs me and holds me close. The ruby is also symbolic. Rubies represent love, passion, courage and emotion, all qualities that I see in my mom. Personal investment is a huge part of why I make art. This is why I find myself attracted to the field of jewelry. Jewelry is so personal, not only is it worn on one's body, but it can also say so much about the wearer to whoever takes the time to notice it. My rings "A Sea Apart" are representative of me and my best friend, who is in the Navy. There are abstracted silhouettes of an anchor and an arrow. The anchor represents my best friend not only because she is in the Navy, but also is a symbol of the sorority she is in just like the arrow is representative of my sorority. These details no one would know unless they took time to notice the small silver rings and ask about them. Only then would they find the deeper meaning behind my work.
