PLAITLY: Wearable Art that Tells a Story
Throughout my life, I have explored various art forms and found inspiration in all of them. I enjoyed trying out each one and testing it as a way to express myself.
My first mode of expression was music. I loved the way that music could fill a room with sound so resonant and thick, or delicate and soft, which fascinated me. After music, I fell in love with drawing. It amazed me that a simple object, such as a pencil, could capture the light and shadows of complex scenes and shapes. I spent some time as a dancer, combining my love of music with motion and exploring the rhythms, lines, and shapes that the human body could create. Then architecture, probably the most challenging of them all, which trained my eyes to see how space is defined by built environments and the way people choose to interact with those environments. And now jewelry, intimate objects of beauty that connect people over space and time.
I believe in the power of jewelry. Jewelry can evoke an emotional response, like music. Or celebrate the human body, like dance. Or capture a moment in time, like drawing. Or tell a story, like a novel. Or evoke a sense of place, like architecture.
My jewelry is for those who recognize that there is more to a piece of jewelry than what it looks like. Each one of my collections begins with an idea I find fascinating. The design process meticulously explores these concepts and results in expressive forms of wearable art. The story behind the jewelry includes the inspiration, the materials, and the way it was made to truly bring to life ideas expressed through a timeless design aesthetic.
I also believe in the importance of giving back to the global community, which is why 10% of our Heliodon Collection sales are donated to the Solar Electric Light Fund (SELF), a non-profit organization that uses the power of the sun to develop and deliver innovative solar solutions in answer to the urgent needs of the world’s energy poor—giving them the opportunity to vastly improve their quality of life and pursue their dreams.
I hope that my jewelry resonates with the creative soul within you, and that you choose to express yourself through the pieces in the PLAITLY Collection.
