SEAFOAM

Seafoam is a series of contemporary jewelry pieces based off high speed photography of seafoam. This series includes earrings, a necklace, a brooch, and a crown. All pieces are made with copper, enamel, or paint. Having lived in San Diego all my life, beaches have become a place that I hold in high regard over the years. Family trips and high school outings with friends have now turned into monthly trips alone to calm my mind when everything around me becomes chaotic.

The sea is one of the few places that quiets down all the noise in my head. Its the only place that I continue to cling onto as I have gotten older. Each piece is meant to encompass how the sea is a source of solace for me along with this ominous feeling of growing up and having to deal with matters that are no longer in my control.
