Unhinged: Juried Jewelry Exhibition
November 18, 2011 - January 7, 2012
UNHINGED features a unique exhibition of handmade jewelry art items designed around the concept and function of the hinge. Hinges, including hinged jewelry, appear in antiquity as early as 3500 BC.
Forged from precious metals to more mundane materials; gold and silver, copper and iron, wood and plastic, the artist's interpretation of the hinge challenges the mind through irony, humor, and technical execution of this often innovative "turning point" in the jewelry arts.
