As a child, I was taught to be quiet and not express myself even though I noticed creativity flowing through my grandmothers fingers in the form of quilt-making. I find my voice when I create art through the meditative state of linking one ring at a time. When knitted with thin metal wire and small rings this masculine, war-like material
becomes extremely soft and flowing. I create seductive, wearable objects combining jewelry techniques with the chain mail to caress the female body. The ritual of laying the transparent veil of chain mail on a woman invokes a sense of security and a feeling of empowerment. My fashion is a merging of art and history in the intimate setting of a woman’s body.
