Rosenfeld combines various glass and beading techniques to create her meticulously crafted, labor-intensive pieces. She is fascinated by people's habitual behaviors and uses her art to tell stories about the fabric of people's lives and the rituals created to bring comfort to our lives.
Rosenfeld makes work that expresses time, conveys history, and serves as a means to preserve memory. She has always been fascinated by the things-both spiritual and physical-people cling to in order to find and define identity. In her work she points to the shared folklore that families and communities create to memorialize people, places and events, and the ways individuals create personal mythologies to contextualize their past and imagine their future. Throughout her life, Rosenfeld has been a collector, and uses found objects as artifacts in her work's constructed symbology.
