Nature Is Love
I'm drawn to creating contemporary art jewelry highlighting nature's bold spirit and kinetic presence. Artistic visual cues range from the Southwestern's boundless sun-drenched blue skies, contrasting mountain-scapes, scaffolding cactus skeletons, bleached bones to neon desert blossoms. Wearing the work activates a tactile experience and animates these ideas as an adornment. My jewelry largely becomes mobile bodies of wearable art; inviting the view to interact as the user and observer.
Lindsay Locatelli’s process is entirely intuitive - making every piece unique. Each component is hand sculpted and carved from polymer clay. After fabrication, she applies various finishing techniques such as paint, carving texture and gold-leafing. This is part of her process requires many layers of materials and tedious sanding sessions in between.
