Mari is attracted to simplifying and deconstructing the complexities of historical furniture, jewelry, and household items, and re-contextualizing those shapes into contemporary jewelry. She evokes the sentiments of past eras to create an intimate experience with a worn object, both for the wearer and the viewer. Using a combination of precious, recycled, and often inexpensive materials, Mari recreates and reinvents the sense of preciousness that historical jewelry holds. In her work Mari examines how historical and contemporary tools and means we use to communicate affect relationships and intimacy in an age of increasing loss of face to face communication.
