New Work: Dance With Me

“My dad’s birthday is coming up. One of my earliest and favorite memories with him is dancing. He called traditional English country (contra) dances and the few times he would let someone else call he would dance with me. When waltzing he would twirl me around and I would stand on his feet to learn the steps. This piece reminds me of dancing in a sea of family and friends with my dad.”

For Dance With Me, Biwa freshwater pearls are snuggled up with 7-inch-long pieces of Connecticut and Nova Scotia driftwood. The bracelet has a sterling silver lobster clasp and is 9 inches long, although the width makes it fit nicely on an 8 inch wrist.
