f l a w e d | The Nereid Ring, a very special piece to me, embraces indecision and sparkles with two-tone beauty.
growing up, I always considered myself "indecisive." I hated myself for it, beat myself up for it, agonizing back-and-forth over the simplest things to find the way that will upset the fewest people. as I get older, I'm still learning to forgive myself this "flaw," but also when and how to use it. and sometimes, to reframe it, realizing that it can be openness, not indecision.
always mystified by the dilemma of gold or silver, some of the very first pieces I ever made were inspired by my "indecision." I loved them both, but believed I had to choose one. in fact, part of the reason I started making jewelry at all was to find a way to play with both together.
since then, there have been many forms this has taken, but the Nereid Ring holds a special place in my heart, singing openness, and all the while sparkling like the stars.
