Jenne Rayburn's Boston Fashion Week Jewelry Trunk Show event will be held on Friday, October 4th, 2013, from 6:00 PM – 8:00 PM, at the Karenna Maraj Jewelry Collection in Belmont, MA. Attendees will have the opportunity to purchase exquisite hand-made collections from Jenne Rayburn, a studio craft artist who will offer one-of-a-kind jewelry and accessories. Jenne will be highlighting her Vintage Inspired Lucite Jewelry Collection.

Jenne Rayburn is a metalsmith, enamellist, and seasoned designer who creates lovely, original jewelry and textile designs intended to compliment the vision of the woman who wears them. “My wearable pieces are a contemporary distillation of ancient handcrafts and jewelry, the ornament of indigenous peoples, and interpretations of nature,” said Rayburn, founder and designer of Jenne Rayburn Handcrafted Jewelry. “I love to blend art and history with form and function, combining traditional and innovative contemporary techniques to achieve dynamic color, texture and pattern effects.” According to Rayburn, vintage Lucite is a terrific material for her statement necklaces, because Lucite comes in a variety of colors, including shiny opaque, clear and jewel-like semi-transparent, yet always has a distinctive shine and feel in the hand.

Jenne Rayburn’s Vintage Collection includes collar-style statement vintage Lucite necklaces as well as necklaces with bobbles, dangles and pendants. Lucite bead bracelets and earrings complete the look for a coordinated ensemble. “With vintage Lucite jewelry, each bead radiates a lovely internal glow, unlike average plastic beads,” said Rayburn.

Lucite makes a wonderful fashion accessory for several reasons according to Rayburn. Foremost, Lucite is lightweight, making dramatic statement necklaces easy to wear. The many color options make Lucite a stand out design material. In keeping with the trend of color blocking, Jenne Rayburn’s designs often showcase bold colors and color opposites put together for the widest contrast possible, or add color to a black and white combination. “Many women are afraid of bright colors, because they are worried that the color won't be flattering or will draw too much attention,” notes Jenne. “However, wearing a bright color that complements your eye color or skin tone can bring a glow to your face and a sparkle to your eyes resulting in a bold look that will make you look and feel terrific.”
