Colorscape Necklace 3 is part of my series, COLORSCAPE. It is a large hinged necklace that acts as a collage against the body.

In this series, intensely saturated planes play off of each other, allowing separate hues to reverberate and dematerialize into a field of color. Subtle forms and carefully arranged layers invite the viewer to explore the surface before investigating supporting armatures. The enameled elements, while seemingly coarse, provoke a sense of preciousness. The resulting collages are playful and curious, urging the viewer to handle and consider them as objects first, and then as engaging adornment.
