This set of brooches offers a solution
to the growing issue of guns in the
hands of the irresponsible and the
incapable. I know the solution is naive
and simplistic, but that’s why I’m not
in charge of public policy. I don’t know
how to do it, just know it needs to stop.
If anyone you know has been praying
for a sign, this just might be it.
For my first senior project, Signs, I
addressed the phenomenon of gun
violence among youth and the media’s
response. I approached the series as a
design project, using simple icons and
champlevé enamel to produce sharp
lines and crisp edges, recreating the
look of traffic signs.
