Contemporary Jewelry: Functional Object & Art

This is a new theme that I am attempting to explore... does jewelry always have to be wearable and functional? Or can it be wholly appreciated as an art piece? Does this defeat the purpose of jewelry?

Moira, after you being so helpful in sending out my order I had to look at what else you're doing and I LOVE these pieces and would certainly want to wear them!
