“As our lives changed in March of 2020 due to COVID-19, I gathered
people to meet online once a week to discuss our jewelry making
projects. My goal was to provide a space for discussion and support of
our creative activities and to avoid isolation. For one of our weekly
assignments, I created a color wheel out of glass and ceramic pieces I
have collected or been given. This arrangement of bits of color became
a project I could do while sitting at a table at the end of my driveway.
While making bezels to hold these bits of color, I would wave and chat
with the people walking by. In isolation, we long to be together and
share our thoughts. Making these necklaces provided connections with
my neighbors as well as my fellow jewelry makers.

The glass and ceramic pieces come from many countries and found
their way to my studio. Each person or their ancestors in this country,
have found their way here as well. The parts of these necklaces go
together to make a whole necklace as each person in this country live
and work together creating our communities.”
