I challenge the idea of value by bringing blue-collar materials into the jewelry realm. By highlighting them against the materials of higher value, I reveal their beauty. With techniques influenced from a shop environment, I emphasize the contrast in materials. Through these juxtapositions I create a dialogue that rivals the beauty seen in any jewelry store.
