Description

Gabriel Craig and Amy Weiks pursued this collaborative body of work. The jewelry playfully combines their disparate interests in historic decorative motifs, kinetic jewelry, implied narratives, line, and jewelry mechanisms. The use of coins and the symbols depicted on them, allow narratives to unfold on the work that make commentary on the nature of wealth, status, and power. The brooches are made exclusively from recycled or reclaimed materials.
