Shay Rego, a junior independent study in the Metals Department, recently gave us insight on the new project she’s working on.
Q: So Shay, what are you working on?
Shay: I’m currently working on a pendant for my mother.
Q: Why are you making it for your mom?
Shay: Well next year I will be heading off for college, and so I wanted to make her something that she can remember me by.
Q: Why did you pick the Cape as your inspiration for this piece?
Shay: It’s my home and I wanted a way for my mom to hold me close to her heart even if she’s not there.
