Jenne Rayburn Handcrafted Jewelry and Wearable Art, a Boston based designer, presents her handcrafted jewelry collection, Ark, at the SoWa Open Market on July 14th, 2013. The SoWa Open Market is held Sundays from May through October, 10 a.m.–4 p.m., at 460 Harrison Avenue. One of Boston’s hippest neighborhoods, The South End has been touted as the best outdoor shopping in Boston. At SoWa Open Market, you can buy top-notch items from local artisans, making everything from couture fashion and leather accessories to jewelry, glass, and custom framed art.

Combining traditional metalsmithing techniques like piercing, stamping, and etching, Ark is a collection of iconic-silhouetted images designed as earrings, necklaces and charm bracelets. "These timeless shapes are inspired by the animal characters found in cultural mythologies the world over," notes Rayburn, "They tell stories of how hope, strength and virtue tie us to a greater universal purpose." Expressing big ideas, aspirations, and values, through deeply rooted symbolism, Ark combines ornament with storytelling.

Wearing great pieces of designer jewelry makes women look and feel beautiful.
