Gallery Five invites you to meet two wearable art creators this week! You will marvel at how Diane Prekup connects fibers, designing melodious blends into vests, jackets and scarves. Joann Hendelman’s use of precious and semiprecious stones are works of art themselves. The Rickie Report urges you to stop by Gallery Five February 18th-22nd and meet these creative women who take art off the wall and make it for us to wear!

Fiber artist, Diane Prekup, creates colorful, one-of-a- kind wearable art. Assembled and sewn, the fiber created is a web-like texture. Her one-of-a-kind creations are assembled with yarns, thread, bamboo, ribbons, silk, nylon, and velvet. She does not use needles, hooks, or a loom in creating her “gypsy lace.” Assembled and sewn, the fiber created is a web-like texture of yarns, suspiciously random in effect but purposeful in design. Diane Prekup’s one-of-a-kind designs are handmade using mixed fibers that may include silk, nylon, viscose, bamboo, cotton and linen.
In 2007, she was an American Craft Council NICHE Magazine Finalist in Fiber: Surface Design for her Velvet Shawl. Diane is a member of Florida Craftsman, Handweavers Guild of America, and American Craft Council.
About Gallery Five:
After 25 seasons in Tequesta’s Gallery Square, they relocated in 2007 to a new venue — still in Tequesta, and only a half-block from US 1 instead of a half-mile. The boutique is now at 140 Bridge Road, just one short block south of Tequesta Drive. (If you drive down US 1, Bridge Road is where you’ll see the CVS Pharmacy and Texaco Service Station. Look for Gallery Five four doors west of the Texaco Station.)
“We are proud of the success of Gallery Five and pleased that the gallery features work of more than 150 American artists from 40 states, with no imports (except for several wonderful Canadian artists). We invite you to visit the Gallery Five showroom to browse through our 62 drawers of jewelry and accessories and all the other custom-designed displays”.
You’re invited to browse through all the virtual drawers in this site to see the hand-crafted wonders by creative artists that Paula and Paul find as they travel around the U.S. in their search for fresh and original crafts.
Over the past 30 years, Gallery Five’s customers have learned to appreciate outstanding service. Their best advertising is satisfied customers.
If you have a certain flair, a spirit of adventure, a bit of flamboyance, an eye for good design, and a desire to look unique, we know you will love the fine crafts and wearable art collection at Gallery Five. – Paul and Paula Coben
