Wear Art is a new couture collection made in collaboration with Monica Shulman, an abstract expressionist painter and fine art photographer located in Dobbs Ferry, NY.
We adorn the walls of our homes with art and our bodies with jewelry. So, the collision of art and jewelry in my mind seems natural. I mean do I believe jewelry itself is art - others may disagree. Anyways! I approached Monica Shulman with the crazy idea of using her art to create a couture jewelry collection. And, she said yes!
So - what did she do? Gave me three paintings...OMG no pressure!
And, what did I do? Cut-them-to-pieces! gasp...
We settled on a few initial designs - a variety of light-weight, statement earrings and a tribal necklace. Each piece that was cut out has been hand-embellished with an assortment of beads.
The pieces are currently in production, and a limited run are expected to be ready this fall - squeak!! They'll be cast in Sterling Silver and plated with Rhodium, yellow Gold, or rose Gold.
Sample pieces, production processes, and renderings can all be seen on my Instagram feed, stories & TV!
