Sparkle Plenty 3

It's not every day that you get to see jewelry treated as an art form. Let's face it, most folks don't get that jewelry IS an art form and that it can be functional or conceptual (or both). It doesn't have to be made with traditionally precious metals like silver or gold. It can be created out of anything; paper, steel, found objects, plastic, hair, etc.
Well, we Richmonders are in luck this month. Last night I went to see Sparkle Plenty 3 at Quirk Gallery. As a jeweler myself, I absolutely LOVE seeing other art jewelers' work up close. The show was curated by Robert Ebendorf and it is wonderful. I urge you to go see the show if you're in the neighborhood. I know I was inspired...
