My earliest memories are of exploring the natural world and experimenting with human-made materials. I most enjoy three-dimensional art and look to light, shadows and diverse natural landscapes for inspiration.
The name Di Luce Design comes from the Italian words meaning “of light.” This phrase embodies a personal journey toward finding my own inner light and truth. The discipline of motherhood, yoga, and making art help me on this path. I also consider myself very fortunate to share a studio space with talented artists here in Seattle. They continually inspire me.
My design interests are mainly in material and form. I enjoy building organic matter into each design, either as inspiration for its style or as a component of its composition. Organic materials such as nori, moss and feathers have made their way into my jewelry, giving it life. Mica is a material that has always captivated me. In Idaho, as a young child I would walk into the foothills behind our home and flake it from rocks. Mica, from the Latin micare, means “to glitter.” And much like the soul of my work, represents the reflection of light.
I truly hope that you find pleasure in my work and know that I welcome your contact.
