Artist Statement: I try my best to be grateful every day. I know how lucky I am, and how much I have to be thankful for. I write in a gratitude journal every day. And it makes me feel happy and complete and satisfied and loved. But sometimes I just want to say “F you.” Cause that’s a real feeling too. We all have a bit of frustration at the world, boiling up right under the surface. And sometimes it’s nice to let it out. So I meticulously hand-cut each of these phrases out of sterling silver sheet. I soldered on earring posts and carefully assembled and polished them. They’re meant for people with double pierced ears. So they can show off the mixed emotions that we all feel.
