In “The Spinster & The Carpenter” Rebecca has unleashed her dirty little secrets in this tell all confessional, “While seeing each lesson as an opportunity to cut myself a break, and learn forgiveness for myself and others. In each piece I finally face the regrets in my life & hold myself accountable for the choices that I alone made, caused and learned from as an independent woman, even when married. I atone for these choices, and take a deep hard look at myself while doing so, while finding non-religious redemption along the way as I become a stronger person.
A spinster lives in all of us, because we make choices on our own and should hold ourselves accountable for the consequences and regrets we face. The pieces reflect coming to terms with ourselves, our deeds, and the actions we’ve taken, that hurt us and our loved ones the most when the chickens come home to roost. A carpenter lives in all of as too, because we learn from those choices and rebuild ourselves internally. A necessary step for self fulfillment, like laying a new foundation from the ground up. This is how we elevate ourselves to a higher state of being.”
Each piece is shown with magnifying glasses and its own professional display which frames and finishes the ring, offering the wearer the option to enjoy it as a ring as well as a standalone sculpture in its display when not worn. A hand blown glass cloche dome, black acrylic base, and armature, underneath the base, a circular aluminum plate is engraved with the piece’s title, medium, weight, artist signature and year. In addition, the signed, fingerprinted, numbered, and dated documentation completes each ring as a fully realized work of art, from conception to execution.
