MJSA Design Challenge 2023: A Second Chapter
5: Megan Cochran
For this project, I really wanted to highlight the colors and shapes of the gemstones. It was important to me that the design didn’t distract from the stones. I also wanted to create a design for Tracy that was playful and fun. One of the things I like most about her story was how she is embracing her identity and that this piece would celebrate that and make her feel good.
Given the type of piece I wanted to create for Tracy, it seemed only natural to create earrings. To me, earrings are the embodiment of youthfulness and fun, and I believe they’re something that you buy to express who you are. Instead of telling a romantic story, they tell your story.
