Boston, MA (PRWEB) April 30, 2014
Handcrafted Jewelry designer Jenne Rayburn is having a Spring Trunk Show during the Fort Point Arts Community Spring Open Studios in Boston, Massachusetts, Mother's Day Week-end, Friday, May 9th from 4-7 pm, and Saturday and Sunday, May 10th and 11th, from noon to 5pm. The Trunk Show will be in the Artist's Group Space at 319 A Street, Boston, MA.
A member artist of the Fort Point Arts Community, Rayburn will be showcasing her handcrafted jewelry collections as well as one-of-a-kind Statement Necklaces. Each piece of Jenne Rayburn jewelry has a story as unique as its design. "My work is inspired by rare objects and heirlooms I have collected from around the world," notes Rayburn of her jewelry designs. "I reinvent these treasures into wearable art." Handcrafted jewelry by Jenne Rayburn is forged out of a passion for uncommon beauty. As part of Open Studios, Rayburn is participating in the Spring Open Studios Group Show featuring individual small works by FPAC members in a range of mediums. Work is on exhibit from April 24-May 12, 2014. The FPAC Gallery is located at 300 Summer Street, on the lower level.
Rayburn is fascinated with myths and folk stories that recount heroic adventures and strive to express the mystery and complexity of the human experience. For women who see themselves as unconventional, yet have a sense of tradition and who are imaginative and a little rebellious, but still classic and timeless, Rayburn makes jewelry just for them. “For me the creative process is about making connections; reconsidering, remixing and reimagining what is possible,” says Rayburn about her process. “Reusing vintage textiles, findings and components, sourcing ethically conscious metals and stones, and tapping local resources for rare and limited edition material, my collections are contemporary, yet vintage, and always eco-friendly.” Each piece is an original design and handmade.
Fort Point is home to over 300 artists who produce work in a wide array of media. It is recognized as one of New England’s largest artists’ communities. The historic warehouse buildings of Fort Point house painters, photographers, sculptors, designers, ceramicists, performance artists, jewelers, book artists, digital media artists, and more.
