When it comes to me, candies and sweets reminds me to live life in the moment and enjoy the small things in life. Jewelry serves the same purpose in a different aspect of my life. It is something unnecessary, but it helps to add a dash of pizazz to the ordinary. My artistic vision for this set of pieces was to take the energetic and whimsical impression I get from candy and morph it into wearable jewelry. Ultimately it was about having fun and being playful with my work. This is something that I feel like I haven’t been able to do in a while. I hope this work inspires people to sit back and enjoy their favorite candy.
