Helen Shirk Jewelry

We have often admired work created by Helen Shirk.
Over the years, she has designed vibrant, incredible pieces of jewelry
that one could say, wore the person rather than the other way around.

Now, we've become aware of a new exhibition being offered
at Taboo Studio
where we can see work from Helen Shirk and other jewelry artists.
This exhibit is called, "The Essence of Nature," showcasing new jewelry by such artists
as Sandra Enterline, Christina Goodman, Barbara Heinrich, and Jan Smith. 
The exhibit runs from February 12 - March 26, 2010.
The artists have created work representing the common theme of "nature in design and the
vital role it plays in our daily lives."
Here we see Helen's contemporary work is vibrant yet wearable. 
Traditional yet intriguing. 
Sophisticated yet accessible.

These pieces are from her Traces Collection. 
They are made from sterling silver, china paint, and patina.

This brooch is called,
 Ruby-Ochre Trace


This brooch is called, Green-Amber Trace



This one is called
Garnet-RubyTrace




We are excited to see this new work by this wonderful artist.
Enjoy!
