strong women, precious pearls
2009
I’ve created hard exteriors out of wire, speaking to ones ability to protect, endure and yet not lose sight of the soul, the beauty and the femininity within. A pearl is constructed when a grain of sand endures years of friction and irritation within an oyster shell. This embattled grain of sand ultimately transforms into something beautiful and cherished.

Couple that with the obstacles that are faced daily, the roadblocks that cause one to think and rethink their plans, the obstacles and attitudes that can hold one back if they don’t endure and here we have a community of people fighting a battle that while huge and often overwhelming has become as much a part of life as eating, sleeping and breathing.
