I just made this collection of 3 necklaces for a show at the Bellevue Arts Museum for a show called “Everyone has a story”
The Seattle Metals Guild Exhibition Committee is seeking entries for Everyone Has A Story, an SMG show featuring narrative works, talismans, and other jewelry/small objects by our members, in the BAM Shop at Bellevue Arts Museum. This show will run in the store at the same time as Ron Ho: A Jeweler’s Tale, a retrospective of Ron’s incredible career.
This is my story. It is a series of 84 hand-cut sterling silver letters forming 3 necklaces. It took 37 hours of my life. I can’t say I enjoyed every minute, but I’m proud of what I created, and feel like it reflect my intention and outlook on life.
“YEAH OKAY SURE WHATEVER FINE”
“WHAT AM I DOING WITH MY LIFE”
“I DONT WANNA STOP I CANT NO PLEASE DONT IDK NOPE”
My life has changed a lot in the last year. A year ago I had it all planned out. But now I’m not so sure. In some ways I’m doing exactly what I want to be doing. In some ways I’m not. “What am I doing with my life” is not a question. It’s a thought. These are all thoughts that race through my head on a daily bases. People who know me say I have my shit together for 26 years old, but I don’t know. I just do things that make sense to me and hope for the best. Living the dream.
Sterling Silver. Hand cut letters. Chains are 74, 56, and 40 cm long. Hand fabricated April 2019 in Seattle WA.
