Sherry Cordova - Seaweed Wrap bracelet

 

Seaweed Wrap
Recycled Sterling Silver Bracelet

Underwater Marvels Shape My Art

Each individually designed piece is fabricated by hand with recycled metal. The art I create is an expression of gratitude to the ocean and a way to give it a voice.

As a SCUBA diver, I witness the impact humans have on the marine environment. My designs evoke the marvels of marine life and my underwater memories while leaving sea creatures and the seaside untouched.
