Jennifer and John Walsh
Jennifer and John Walsh are frequently inspired by finding a material and musing as to whether or not it could be worn as a piece of jewelry.
Striving to use materials that a woman from prehistory might have been attracted to, the artists apply a variety of surface treatments and patinas that mimic decay, while elevating these "low" materials by constructing them with precious metals and stones.
The forces of decay and decrepitude and human persistence in the face of these elements are a major influence in their work. It is for this reason that they rarely choose the thing that's new and shiny, preferring instead to use, for instance, a fossil or a river stone that's been worn smooth.
They feel that people are instinctively attracted to these pieces, because in them we see a metaphor for the wear and tear of our daily modern lives: the thing that's been worn smooth by centuries of friction between water and sand, yet emerged from this a burnished and more beautiful piece than when it started.
Incorporating these elements into their jewelry--stones gathered from local rivers, shells and bits of wood--imparts a sense of continuity and timelessness to the wearer.
