While contemplating heading over to the Affordable Art Fair this weekend, I came across the work of Marilu Datoli Harnett whose layers of tinted plaster with free-form application of silver leaf called to mind jewelry, and specifically three designers who’ve utilized a similar organic approach in various mediums to create their beguiling articles of adornment.
“Journey 6” and “Journey 6 Blue” by Marilu Harnett (Cheryl Hazan Gallery)
Brooklyn artist, Jane D’Arensbourg “fell into” jewelry design while working as a glass fabricator for other artists. Her glass bubble rings, $135 each, are made from Pyrex and surprisingly durable.
Nicole Landaw’s bubble medallion earrings of 18K gold are each accented with seven (lucky) diamonds.
My dear (and wickedly funny) friend, Dorian Webb creates this textured Sterling silver cuff, $340.
