Kristin Beeler | “My practice includes contemporary jewelry, photography and object making. It sits at the intersection of beauty, memory, the body and jewelry as mnemonic device. We conjure beauty from things left behind: flawed logic, peeling paint, scars, burnt evidence. Memories are isolated stopping points along a continuum of interconnected events. Jewelry and the body remain primary locations for siting memory. Recollection involves multiple associations and jewelry is often its embodiment. It is the miniaturization of things to be remembered bound in a portable format. In the mythology of materials, the nostalgia of mother of pearl and charcoal contrast the opposing beauties of vulnerability and protection. In the end, all that we are reduces down to our bodies and our memories.”(*)
