But I wanted to quickly share a video with you that shows off the work and skill of an amazing wire artist, Lynne Merchant.
I remember quite clearly the excitement I felt when I first saw her work in a magazine article. Her work embodies a particular feel that I resonate strongly with and her story is every bit as interesting as her work. As a matter of fact, her work and her life experiences as a nomadic traveler were both very instrumental in influencing the way that I currently live my own life.
Her website has a wonderful page that links you do all the articles she has been the subject of, and this video is a treat for anyone interested in handmade jewelry as well. I love how she interacts with wire and has full presence with her jewelry practice.
I think her method of using jewelry making as a vehicle to explore her own being is what I admire the most about her. She has a personal integrity that is reflected by the way she teaches and in the final result of her astoundingly creative work.
