Spun Trio Brooches

The Spun series is comprised of jewelry pieces that feature wire components reminiscent of Spirograph™ drawings, vibrant colors, and flowing linear compositions. The Spun brooch trio follows this compositional recipe.

Wire binding serves as an essential joining method in the creation of my three-dimensional linear drawings. In order to reproduce the intricate geometric markings of the Spirograph™, I created a jig similar to those used for string art patterns. These jigs are originally intended to help children understand geometric progression. Instead of string, I spin fine thread, copper or silver wire, to create delicate pieces. Each shape is bound together by over four hundred stiches of continuous wire that give the forms structural integrity.
