Carol Windsor

"With my work, I hope to evoke an appreciation of the beauty and preciousness of life."

Carol Windsor has developed a technique of laminating oxidized sterling silver wire between layers of very thin acid-free paper. The oxidized wire shows through the translucent paper like veins in a leaf or petal. The connecting 'twigs' are textured, oxidized, then dimpled with a burr to suggest the spot where a branch has broken off. When worn, the pieces softly rustle, almost like leaves. Windsor's intent is that the organic materials, forms, and auditory elements will suggest the fragility of life and the preciousness of the moment.
