Studio Explorations ~ Bronze Sculpture Jewelry

November 6, 2014 § Leave a comment

Using my rusty linoleum knives and old kitchen tools, I had so much fun creating molds and textures to experiment with bronze metal clay in a class with Michela Verani. This collection of bohemian chic necklaces, earrings and bracecets was inspired by various bohemian, hippie and ethnic influences, and incorporates sculpted metal jewelry pieces I created from bronze clay.

This collection of work is part of a show and sale of local handcrafted jewelry, artwork and gifts at the Made in Fort Point Gallery at 315 A Street, Boston. The Jewelry Showcase opening reception is November 6th from 5:30pm to 7:30pm.

Modern Pearl Jewelry ~ Leather Tassel Necklace

June 6, 2014 § Leave a comment

How can you give pearls a sexy modern edge? By adding antiqued sterling silver chain, leather and unique vintage inspired findings.

This necklace makes quite a statement thanks to a leather tassel, and chunky oxidized sterling silver chain adorned with large white cultured pearls, creating a Boho Chic accessory. At once romantic and rock ‘n’ roll, this glamorously long necklace design looks great draped over your favorite outfit, transitioning easily from the office to off duty. White, glossy, cloud-like pillows of freshwater pearls create a stunning strand of luxury!

There’s a reason pearls never go out of style… Elegant, long and a true (modern) classic, this is the kind of have-forever, hand-me-down pearl necklace every contemporary woman should have in her jewelry box.

Opening this Sunday, March 23rd and running through April 6th, 2014 is The Lexington Society of Arts and Crafts Society Metalworkers Exhibit “Jewel Tones” In Lexington, MA at 130 Waltham Street. I will have on display, and for sale, ten new works from the Ossis Collection of handcrafted jewelry.

Sunday March 23rd the Gallery opens at noon and at 2PM guest speaker Munya Avigail Upin will present a lecture on the “History of Weaving in Contemporary Metals”. The Exhibit will stay open until 5PM, and refreshments will be served.

Long known for showcasing work by local artists living in Massachusetts and New England, exhibits at The Lexington Arts and Crafts Society typically feature collaborations between the different guilds and artists. Some of the most interesting work is often a result of collaboration, and this combined exhibit of metalworker and weaver guilds will showcase cross-discipline learning and sharing of artistic experiences bringing fresh perspectives to the work and the artists.
