Wild Marjoram Sash no. 2
These sashes were created for a show at InLiquid, Goldsmiths ’20, a show being held in conjunction with the Society of North American Goldsmith 2021 conference. The first SNAG exhibition was Goldsmiths ’70. For this show, “SNAG members were invited to look at the pieces and makers that were in the original exhibition to influence their own creation” (SNAG site). Marjorie Schick was an American jewelry artist who participated in this first exhibition. Schick paved the way for wearable sculpture in art jewelry and has been a huge influence in my work. I was thrilled to be able to design and propose a piece in her honor. While her work was not pictured in the Goldsmiths ’70 catalogue, I used images of Marjorie’s sashes from Charon Kransen Arts web page as a starting influence for these two works.
