Collection: Jeannie Ortiz

This Collection is from Truth Or Consequences based artist, Jeannie Ortiz.

The Movement of Stone is a project begun in 2019 composed of 32 pieces of adornment. The pieces constructed in this series trace a path traveled in that pre-pandemic year. They are small meditations on our human bodies, the spaces we traverse, and the elements of earth that pass through our hands. Stones are timeless. Not even the calcium of our bones will outlive the stones we caress, and we enjoy them nonetheless. Or even more.

Wood and shell tell their own story, one of cell division, lives lived, erosion and decay.

Of the places I set foot, each stone was carefully selected, every piece brought home was drilled and carefully assembled into a one-of-a-kind adornments.
