The Museum Store Jewelry Collection

Local Artist Nora Julia

Nora Julia designs, forms, files, saws, fuses, hammers, and polishes every piece of jewelry by hand. She mainly works with Argentium sterling silver—a hypoallergenic, highly tarnish resistant silver alloy guaranteed to be made using 100% recycled metal. Each filigree piece takes multiple hours to complete - forming every wire shape individually and ensuring they fit into the outline without overcrowding is a precise art. While the jewelry looks delicate, the joining of the wires forms a surprisingly strong web of silver.

Local Artist Pat Phillips

Pat Phillips is a goldsmith artist, creating one-of-a-kind works. Emphasis is placed on the interrelationship of shapes, lines and textures, with a limited utilization of color. Each piece is generally hand wrought in gold and silver, starting from sheet and wire, with gemstones added for balance. The techniques incorporated are pulled from modern to ancient methods designed to please the eye through balance. They are small sculptural art forms which speak of a blend between delicate grace and strength as part of self-expression.
