Talking with Marlene True #149Monday February 21, 2011
Marlene True has a whimsical and original take on creating her eclectic metal jewelry. Each piece has a story and pulls you in with wanting to know more.
“I am interested in jewelry and how it functions as a form of non-verbal communication. I work with used tin cans as a material for fabrication or I select a particular image, color or text from a tin to become the focal point; these vignettes often hint at a story. Memento Mori jewelry reminds the wearer of his or her own mortality, while a portrait brooch honors a loved one.”
I know you will enjoy my chat with Marlene.
