|Convergence II Exhibition 2010|
Convergence II is a juried show from 2010 that features functional, wearable jewelry showcasing the use of handmade glass beads designed for an imaginary or historic figure (i.e., What jewelry might Amelia Earhart have worn - a compass necklace or a pendant of a bird in flight? What type of cufflinks would the Phantom of the Opera wear? If Madeleine Albright was speaking to the General Assembly of the United Nations, what brooch would she wear? What considerations would you make when designing a necklace for Marie Antoinette- would you make a heavily fortified choker? Would you make an Art Nouveau style hair comb for Rapunzel?) The possibilities and interpretations are endless and the stories of inspiration, we think, are amazing to share!
