Cheryl Eve Acosta’s sculptural jewelry is inspired by the Cycle of Life specifically marine biology. She is known for her unique copper fused fabric and glass processes, transforming mundane materials into one of a kind adornment. Both her sculptural art and jewelry capture elements of birth, growth, to the fossilization of corals; a distinctive theme to her storyline. The French/Caribbean native highlights both the impermanence and fragility of endangered natural forms in the dying ecosystem with the delicateness of her jewelry.
