Each MPR piece is fabricated by hand using sterling silver and gold fill tubing with nylon-coated steel wire as textile-like “fiber” to form the structure of the collections. Mixing metals with textile techniques, MPR experiments with classic, elementary materials like miniature bridge cabling, industrial ball chain, electrical wire, safety pins, and findings mixed with fine metals to reinterpret them to create industrial jewelry that is feminine, luxurious, and alluring. The resulting collections are lightweight, flexible, and adapt to the wearer. The pieces can be thrown on with a t-shirt or enliven an elegant dress.
