ALL THAT GLITTERS
‘All That Glitters’ is a show and sale of the finest quality handcrafted jewelry - the work of three of our Members. They are Daria Love, Laurie Stevenson Bullock and Maureen Sims. All three craft original unique designs into exquisite pieces of fine jewelry. Daria focuses on the primitive beauty of semi-precious stones , the elegance of freshwater pearls, dazzling vintage beads, sterling silver and sterling silver chain maille. Laurie works primarily with sterling silver from which she creates shape and form without the use of molds. Into these intricate designs she incorporates semi-precious stones to create stunning pieces of one-of-a-kind jewelry. Her latest focus is transitioning silver family heirlooms into pieces of wearable art. Maureen combines wax carvings and castings of natural objects with precious and semi-precious stones. By mixing different metals like gold and silver or silver and copper she produces fashionable, distinctive pieces of fine jewelry. This is an exhibition for those who appreciate design, uniqueness and quality in fine jewelry. It is timely for early Christmas shopping. Each artist is also prepared to help you design that special one-of-a kind piece which you want as your personal signature piece different from all the rest. This show runs from Oct 13 to Nov 10. The Opening Reception is Saturday Oct 13 from 2 to 4 p.m. Refreshments.
