CJ Tennant Trunk Show
Friday, February 8, 2013 to Sunday, February 10, 2013
Meet jewelry designer CJ Tennant on Friday, February 8 from 5-9pm and learn how she creates her fabulous pieces.
Drawing inspiration from art, iconic images, poetry, printmaking techniques, and vintage designs, CJ Tennant's jewelry explores the range of possibilities for new classics. She creates exquisite, graceful, and graphic pieces that compliment the body's lines. Her pieces are composed of semi-precious and precious gemstones, freshwater pearls, sterling silver, and 14K goldfill.
Using only wire and linking techniques, Tennant creates architectural jewelry pieces with non-traditional structures. She is interested in new and unexpected forms that arise from using the "wrong" tools and processes for the piece in question. Each link is wrapped, rather than simply closed, resulting in better finishing and better durability of the piece which is then tested for both comfort and functionality.
