I love to create sculptural objects with the technique of Russian filigree. The lines in my Spellbound series of one-of-a-kind earrings are informed by Art Nouveau design and contemporary Arabic graffiti. The resulting negative spaces as I curve and bend the Russian filigree into tiny sculptures are as integral to my designs as the positive spaces of the wires.
