Exhibition - Mary Hallam Pearse and Julia V. Turner

We recently became aware of a jewelry exhibition
currently showing at Taboo Studio.
"Fresh Air” is running from
February 11 – March 25, 2011.

"Fresh Air" is a contemporary jewelry art show
featuring new work by eight artists (several of whom
we have previously seen on this blog).
JEWELRY ARTISTS in this exhibition include:
Brooke Battles, Joanna Gollberg, Christy Klug,
Brigid O’Hanrahan, Mary Hallam Pearse,
Ingrid Psuty, Claire Sanford, and Julia V. Turner.


Let's take a look at some examples of the one-of-a-kind
jewelry included in this exhibition.


We find the brooches made by
Mary Hallam Pearse
to be rather exciting and different.
She works with found images and prints
them on thin sheets of aluminum
then incorporates materials such as
sterling silver and diamonds to
create pieces that are unique.
This brooch called "Diamond Tears"
is a real attention getter.





 
And this piece is called "Three Words."
Truly eye catching.






Another artist we admire in this
exhibition is Julia V. Turner.
She is showing a series of
fascinating pendants that feature distressed wood.

This piece is called "Blue Migration Pendant."
In this piece the unspecified type of wood
has been burned and stained.
It’s enclosed by steel and meticulously
decorated with Japanese glass beads.






 
Here's another intriguing example of this artist's work.
This pendant is called "Orange Scatter"- and
here again we see wood that has been
burned and stained, and decorated
with Japanese glass beads.

 


We'd love to see these pieces in person.
If you get the opportunity to attend this exhibit
let us know your thoughts and impressions
of the jewelry on view.

Enjoy the exhibit!
