We love the ingenuity of Mad.Elephant's jewelery designs, which includes items as disparate as chicken bone knuckle ring, a 22-caliber bullet shell bracelet and a dove's foot bracelet. Of her work she says, "Art is the filter in my brain that sorts through and deals with all the thoughts in my head which are numerous and sometimes hard to deal with. I heal myself through my art. I found that when I deal with personal issues and painful subject matter, my art is much stronger as well as my concepts. Strife inspires me. Maybe I seek it out in some ways because this is so. Although the healing process is difficult and exhausting, I come out stronger in the end. My jewelry is a perfect manifestation of this process."
