FACSIMILE: Kathleen Browne

In this new body of work, Browne uses digital images of rhinestones to create decals that are fired onto enamel surfaces. The result is a collection of hand fabricated brooches and neckpieces that in the words of the artist ““serves with humor, to honor the rhinestone – a humble class of everyday jewelry that was a substitute for diamonds and other precious stones.”” Kathleen Browne heads the jewelry/metals/enameling department at Kent State University, Ohio. Artist Reception, Oct. 2, 7-9 pm.
