Laura Davis uses the intimate and inconspicuous forms of jewelry and giftware to look at the struggles faced by women of the baby boomer generation. In seamless combinations of found objects and fabricated elements, the narrative pieces reveal references to the past that are relevant to the present, at once anachronistic and contemporary.
