The ancients wore pieces of animal teeth or bones of one kind or another, the lucky rabbit foot or elk tooth come to mind.  Some people called these items "feelies" or heirlooms of one kind or another.  My idea behind the creation of Wearable Art stems from the act of carrying something around in your hand, pocket or purse, or around your neck, that soothes one's nerves or anxiety.

My work springs from the time I was a student at the Royal Academy in Amsterdam, the Netherlands, where many of us were engaged in making beautiful and meaningful "small momuments" (medallions) commemorating important people, places or events that occurred at one time or another. The activity was inspired by the Greek and Phoenician coins that were stamped into silver or bronze. All of my wearable art is cast in silver. except the Amore ring which is cast in white gold.
