Pattie Walker December 4 studio sale
Please join me and my partner in glass Denise Therrien for a unique jewellery shopping moment .
Denise has studied the global influences of the decorative art of jewellery and glass from the mountains of Mexico, to the hills of Thailand, to the markets of the Middle East.
Her new line of jewellery transforms the earthly elements of gold, silver and silica crystal into bold, pieces of signature artwear. Using her unique glass fusion process of layering pieces of glass, colour upon colour , with flecks of precious metals, she super- heats them and lets chemistry finish the artistic process. The results are subtle, painterly blends of pigment frozen into the glass which splashes the iridescence of a tropical butterfly wing.
Her glass works are high quality fashion accessories, that are one of a kind and hand crafted.
Once the glass pieces are finished, each is set in handcrafted silver settings Fair trade produced by a silver craftsman in the hills of Chaing Mai, Thailand where his family has been working in silver for six generations. The necklaces are strung with semi-precious beads to create a sophisticated effect that is both contemporary and global in design.
The pieces are designed with flexibility in mind and can be adjusted to three different lengths to accommodate different necklines.
A recent completed commission of mine will be on view and a few of my works will be for sale.
