Identity Connections is a collection that consists of eight brooches. The work is predominately based on the celebration of family narratives and the identity that is formed within those family stories. The ones that you use as an anecdote, the ones that your parents tell you to make you feel better, they all act as family history and they allow you to feel connected to the generations before. The collection is comprised of old photos depicting family. The materials used are resin, sublimated acrylic, copper, brass, steel, silver plating and antiquing fluid.
