Taking part in TWO x TWO for Aids and Art

Contemporary Art jewelry received some  high-profile attention at the TWO x TWO auction for Aids and Art that took place at the Richard Meier designed Rachofsky House in Dallas.
Auction goers had an opportunity to bid on work by some of the most important, international, contemporary jewelers. The group was carefully chosen by well known philanthropist and art collector, Deedie Rose, whose own passion for “wearable art” inspired her interest in having this art form prominently highlighted in the auction.
We couldn’t be prouder of our participation in this important event, with a piece by noted Dutch artist, Evert Nijland.
