These earrings are created by applying the traditional Champlevé enamel technique to the industrial powder coat system. Each earring is hand-cut from brass and soldered in layers to create a dimensional surface that is lightweight, durable, and most of all, wearable. The matte black lines are in contrast with the glossy pockets of color that I inlay by hand in the same way vitreous enamel is wet-packed and inlaid in champlevé.

The shapes come from my illustrations and recordings of people I interact with daily. If a person makes an interesting combination of movements, I record this in a system of symbols and shapes. The hoop earrings are one person's combination of movements: a dropped shoulder, an open mouth, a neck tilted right. The dangle and stud earrings are one symbol enlarged to make a fun and beautiful form to wear. These recordings are inspired by my life-long experience and fluency in American Sign Language and Deaf culture.
