So that bracelet you are wearing can trace its origins to some Neanderthal roaming the forest. Sounds crazy, doesn’t it? It makes sense when you realize the origination of jewelry spans many thousands of years. Jewelry is one of the oldest archeological artifacts – shell beads from the Neanderthal area around 115,000 years ago were some of the earliest discoveries. Throughout history, jewelry has been a universal form of adornment – to show status or rank, as a recognition of affiliation (religious, political) and as a symbol of personal meaning (love, mourning, luck). Thanks to the ingenuity of the Greeks adding gemstones to gold in 1600 BC, jewelry has evolved into a stunning form of art. Fast forward to today, and there is an endless variety of jewelry adorning our bodies, our fashion, our homes. Two local artisans who have embraced this art form are being featured in the upcoming event,Glass, Jewelry and Wearable Art at The Craft Gallery in West Palm Beach.

 

 

 

 

Rickie Leiter,publisher of – you guessed it – The Rickie Report, will be showcasing some of her beautiful jewelry at this event. Most of her pieces incorporate a variety of gemstones, many with a central, unusual focal piece to complement the stones. Her one-of-a-kind pieces have been sold in museum shops, local galleries and wearable art boutiques. It’s no surprise that Rickie landed squarely in the middle of South Florida’s local art scene. Raised in a decidedly creative household with an affinity for community activism and an appreciation of nature, she has explored many avenues during her artistic journey. From art consultant and board member of an international organization to special needs advocate and online publisher, Rickie’s creativity shines in her art.

 

Irene Jalowayski, an accomplished glass artist in Palm Beach County, will thrill you with her exquisite jewelry using glass and metals. Working in fused glass, cast glass and mixed media, Irene has an incredible eye for color and style. Her use of dichroic glass adds even more color explosion to her pieces. In addition to her unique jewelry designs, you’ll see her creative style emerge in her glass pieces – sculptures, vases, platters, Judaica, candlesticks and so much more. Always an art lover and collector, Irene started “playing” in fused glass 15 years ago, studying with master glass artists in the area. What started as a hobby has evolved into a passion, and it shows! The winner of numerous awards, her work has been seen in galleries, art shows and exhibitions around South Florida.

 Glass by Tony Glander

Tony Glander started working in stained glass in 1989. It didn’t take long for him to become totally hooked on making beautiful art works in colored glass. In 1990 he purchased a stained glass studio, Glass Fantasies in Gaithersburg, MD. “I love every technique from cold glass to hot glass”!

Wanting to further expand the quality of his work, Tony added silk screening to his many skills. “I never really cared for faces done in stained glass so one day I had a brainstorm – use a silk screened photo on the glass.” He tried using a picture of his wife and the results were simply stunning. “After that piece, I was hooked on using screen printing anytime I could. Although I have created a lot of really nice pieces, my best works of art are my young children Maya and Lucas.”
