​My paternal Grandfather William poses with my Great Grandfather Nicola and Great Grandmother Ida for a family portrait in New York City, circa 1915. I used vintage beads and chains for two different pieces of jewelry to reinvent something new. The bezels which house the family photos were handmade by me and cast into multiples. I cut them to fit inside and added a layer of resin to seal them within.
