Exhibition - Rebecca Hannon and Vicki Mason Jewelry

Let's take one last look at the current exhibition,
"Transmutations: Material Reborn,"
This exhibition is running from
April 28 through May 17, 2010.
(You may also want to visit our first post about
this exhibit, showcasing Betty Heald.)
 
"Transmutations: Material Reborn," is a contemporary
jewelry art show featuring twenty-seven
international artists who transform plastics
(materials that include resin,
latex, rubber, vinyl, and thermoplastics)
 into wearable art.

As the gallery describes it -
There are pieces meant for everyday adornment,
and pieces meant to make a statement.
  Let's take a look at some examples of the one-of-a-kind
jewelry included in this exhibition.
Here are some playful pieces
created by Rebecca Hannon.

Her chosen materials include plastic and sterling silver.

This endearing piece is called "Map Brooch."




and these amusing earrings are called "Drama."





Additionally, we can see some adorable
pieces created by Vicki Mason.

Each of her works at the exhibit
feature hand-dyed PVC,
black powder-coated brass and copper,
with polyester and rayon thread.

This charming brooch is
called "Tinkering with Nature II."





and here we can see another sweet brooch
called "Tinkering with Nature III."



 
Light-hearted and thoughtful at the same time.
We are inspired by the variations of materials
and designs that can be created from
a mundane material such as plastics.

Are you inspired?
Let us know your thoughts,
we'd love to hear from you.
