Kristin Beeler is Professor of Art and Coordinator of Jewelry and Metalwork at Long Beach City College. She has been a resident artist at Cleveland Institute of Art, Kent State University and visiting artist at Cranbrook Academy of Art. She spent part of her recent sabbatical as Research Associate at the University of Technology Sydney in the Faculty of Engineering and IT working with the Materialising Memories research program.

My practice includes contemporary jewelry, photography and object making. Its product sits at the intersection of beauty, memory, and the body with jewelry as a mnemonic device. Integumentum is a related set of pieces exploring layering of skin, experience, and location. Photographic portraits printed on aluminum highlight scarring from traumatic injury and pair with garments rendered in Tyvek onto which each scar has been embroidered. The portraits mark a specific point in time and geography as well as a specific location on the body. Accompanying objects in charcoal, mother of pearl, vellum, and silver relate to physical experience and traces of individual moments.
