Please visit Brandi Couvillion's website to purchase her Etched Cartographic Jewelry - www.bcouvillion.com
Hailing from New Orleans, Couvillion is inspired by the built environment around her and the various states of its decay, as well as the fleeting ephemera we fail to appreciate each day.
Her jewelry work comprising metal etchings of historic New Orleans maps - some dating from as early as the 1700s culled from archives - make permanent an ephemeral aspect of our city’s history. From raw sheets of metal they transform into jewelry through an intensive, handcrafted process involving heat image transfers, various etchants, patinas and polishes, as well as hammer forming, ultimately becoming small, wearable archives in suspension.
This adornment immortalizes the transitory landscapes of New Orleans’ history: from trade routes and forgotten swamps to abandoned asylums whose architectural residue still decorates the landscape today.
Ultimately, her work weaves the fabric of time with the poetics of space.
