In The Shop: Jennifer Longworth Art Jewelry
Perkins Visitor Center
Inspired by traditional Japanese keiran-nuri, or eggshell lacquer, Jennifer Longworth’s jewelry combines beautiful birds' eggshells from around the world, seashells, precious metal leaf and tinted silver leaf. Locally handcrafted and responsibly sourced, each piece is a miniature artwork, your own talisman to carry with you or bestow on another! Many of her pieces are made within glass lockets, so you can turn (and wear) the piece reversed, and see the evolution of the gilding and the beautiful shades of the shells undersides. Mother’s Day event.
