Our July Discovery Auction is highlighted by a collection of contemporary jewelry. These artists are instrumental in the advancement of jewelry as an art form. They include Judy Onofrio, Glenda Arentzen, Biba Schutz, Ramona Solberg, Jane Peiser, Holly Anne Mitchell, Reiko Ishiyama, Wendy Ellsworth and Arline Fisch. Their works marry functional wearability and artistry through exploring a variety of mediums. Their work has been exhibited at the Smithsonian's Renwick Gallery and many contemporary galleries across America. As Arline Fisch explains, “ the major function of a piece of jewelry is to make the person who wears it look and feel beautiful, elegant and distinctive. It must enhance the person, compliment the personality and never overwhelm either aspect of the wearer.” But, “I don’t want my jewelry to go into deposit boxes. I want it worn to Safeway and to ball games.” Ramona Solberg.

Please enjoy the auction and their works!
