"Celestial Aquatic Love Song: The Whale" - Pendant with handmade chain - 2013

Sure, some people like to hang art on their walls, but wouldn't it be so much more interesting hanging on you? Jewelry thaumaturge Kristin Diener has been working with wearable art since 1980, when she took her first jewelry class at a small Mennonite college. Now with a few decades of artistic and teaching experience under her belt, Diener employs a sensational array of materials in her one-of-a-kind pieces. Standout baubles include “Celestial Aquatic Love Song,” radiantly combining a plastic whale pendant with a handmade chain, plus aquamarines, moonstones, pearls, ammonine and turquoise; “Watermelon Tourmaline: Eye,” worn long or as a double strand choker, incorporating synthetic ruby, pearl, a fragment of calendar and gold candy wrapper foil; and “Raven,” a pendant with a bottlecap as its centerpiece amongst a cluster of moonstone, pearls and handcrafted chain. Melding density with delicacy, Diener's work will be featured all October in the exhibition Luscious at Mariposa Gallery in Nob Hill (3500 Central SE). Join her for an opening reception tonight from 5 to 8pm and find something that'll make you sparkle. Mariposa Gallery • Fri Oct 4 • 5-8pm • FREE • View on Alibi calendar
