I have begun creating some new pieces I am calling Amulet Series. The most basic definition of an amulet is something that attracts good and repels bad, and I have long been fascinated with the magic elements of different beliefs around the world. I have also long been a victim of bead lust; I can't get enough of the beautiful textures, shapes and colors of beads from around the world. By combining amulets on leather thongs and other wearable art pieces with wall art, I am able to indulge my enthrallment with all of these elements. In this series, each work has at least one neck piece which may be removed to be worn, then returned to again be wall art.
