Jim Cotter's work consists of creating images from a variety of materials not normally associated with jewelry such as steel, concrete, rocks and sought after everyday objects. By combining non-precious materials with precious materials, used to create intimate jewelry objects, Jim seeks to challenge notions and assumptions of how jewelry is perceived and what jewelry can be.
