GUEST ARTIST - JEANNE ELMER
Jeanne's artwork is inspired by all things miniature, childhood memories and the art of Joseph Cornell. She loves the idea of creating tiny alternate realities, captured and preserved behind glass. She gathers “little’s” gleaned from estate sales and flea markets and then re-assemble them in small boxes. The boxes are then soldered with lead-free solder. Each piece is unlike any other and like Cornell’s work, her pieces create a magical dream like effect. The pendant necklaces can be housed in a shrine box for display when the necklace is not being worn. Is that cool or what?
