EXHIBIT 8 // DECEMBER 2016
POLLY WALES FINE JEWERLY
We are excited to host an evening with Polly Wales, one of our favorite jewelry designers who's work we carry and adore for her rule-breaking and wearable works of art.
Polly, who spent her formative years in London and free-spirited Brighton in England, always had a strong affinity for the arts. She studied sculpture early on and later studied jewelry at The Royal College of Art in London. Although Polly is a classically trained fine artist, she has always had a penchant for breaking the mold.
“I found that jewerly, rather than sculpture, allowed me to make pieces that spoke directly to more people…I loved making for making’s sake and creating a final product from an aesthetic view point rather than one based on theory and rules,” she says.
Through jewerly, Polly set out to make pieces that molded and evolved along with the person wearing it. The treasured relationship with the piece of jewerly would become more and more precious over the years.
Trunk Show Dec. 7, 4-7pm
