ELYN BLAKE JEWELRY
Stag & Doe Trunk Show Event
Wednesday, November 29th, 5-9PM
Gravers Lane Gallery presents an exquisite holiday trunk show collection of jewelry by Philadelphia metalsmith Elyn Blake.
Elyn’s distinctive jewelry features a variety of colorful quartz druzy, a vibrant irregular surface which consists of small crystals that grow on a foundation stone. The druzy is formed in voids, like the cavities in geodes, which sparkle with a variety of colored minerals. She pairs hand-selected iridescent stones with oxidized sterling silver or 14k gold to produce unique necklaces, bracelets, earrings that truly embody the concept of luxurious wearable art. Her designs are inspired by childhood memories of her mother’s array of antique pocketbooks which continues to influence her process even today. She is a self-taught jewelry designer and over the years she refined her technical skills at Penland School of Craft, NC; University of the Arts, PA; and Haystack Mountain School of Crafts, ME.
