I am Caroline Rosoff, a queer Jeweler and Metalsmith based out of Brooklyn, NY. My newest collection of work T E E T H is specifically by and for the LGBTQ+ community and was inspired by the beauty and strength in ferocity, the need for visibility particularly in this political climate, and the desire to deconstruct the gender binary in ornamentation to create a line of genderless adornment. For these reasons I think I am a qualified candidate to receive an Ello Celebrates Diversity Artist Grant. Thank you. Love & Light.
