The Vintage Leather Stamp Series emerged from a collection of discarded vintage leather working tools. Employing the age-old 'Lost Wax' casting technique, I am able to capture a critical moment when pressing the hot tool into wax. The cast wax is then solidified into sterling silver, yellow and white gold, capturing the fluidity of the molten wax into a permanent material. Due to these molten qualities, each piece is unique.

The leather tools themselves are now rare and collectible items. Harnessing the refined characteristics of vintage tooling compliments my desire to reclaim objects and stories that have been lost. Where once these motifs decorated bags, clothes and leather bound books; reinterpreting their function transforms them to precious objects worn on the skin.
