2nd Friday Part 2
After we went to Andrea's show, we had to go see Emily Jungden's show at Genevieve Flynn's gallery. Of course we expected to love what Emily was showing, but Oh! I can't even describe how fabulous her jewelry was. Apparently Miss Emily has been holding out on us and making amazing enameled basket rings and bracelets that are, basically, wearable sculpture. I took pictures, but they really don't do them justice--I'll try to get better ones, so you can see it up close and personal.
Anyway, see what you can out of these pics, and I'll try to get her to put her new jewelry in the store (at least some?) so you can have a chance to really see it.
By the way, the gun that Emily is holding in that top picture? Aside from enameling the handle, she has turned it from be be gun to viewfinder. You insert tiny picture slides that she made (of fashion-y things) and put the end of the gun up to your eye, and you go through the slides. It is awesome and I thought my sister was going to run away with it.
Enameled knife--she even carved the blade out of steel!
Giant enamel flower rings.
The large pieces are the bracelets, you can see some rings in the background.
