GUEST ARTIST - JEANNE ELMER
Jeanne’s art is inspired by all things miniature, childhood memories and by the art of Joseph Cornell. She loves creating tiny alternate realities, captured and preserved behind glass. Gathering what she calls “little’s”, gleaned from estate sales and flea markets, Jeanne re-assembles them and displays them in small metal boxes made with lead-free solder. Each piece is one-of-a-kind and, as with Cornell’s work, her pieces create a magical dream like effect. The pendant necklaces can be housed in their shrine boxes for display when the necklace is not being worn.
