Rochele Gomez: Making Jewelry

Rochele Gomez (UC Irvine): $850 for Making Jewelry. February Mini Grants

Making Jewelry consists of discarded furniture that Rochele Gomez found on the street: a couch, side table, and bookshelf; in addition to a platform covered with carpet she made. She altered the found furniture by cutting holes in each piece with jigsaws and utility knives. Those holes and the platform will be covered with cane panels that she will have made at Cane & Basket Supply in Los Angeles.
