Peter Ciesla and Skye, owners of Bazyli Studio Wearable Art Gallery in Baileys Harbor, will have their annual trunk show at Linden Gallery in Ellison Bay, Oct. 1 & 2. They have been showing their unique beaded jewelry with Linden Gallery since 2006.
This trunk show features amber as well as their ongoing Asian Collection and “Fragments” series. For the past 10 years Brian and Jeanee Linden have brought back regional artisan “treasures” from their travels in Southwest China. Peter and Skye incorporate these beautiful antique pieces into necklaces, belts and pendants. “We have been working with these pieces for 10 years and have created a collection that is exclusive to Linden Gallery during their season,” said Ciesla. “We feel honored to be working with such exquisite work crafted by Miao tribal artisans.”
This year’s collection will also feature meticulously carved stone dragons, cranes and other symbolic Chinese motifs, incorporated into the distinctive Bazyli style. Skye and Peter have collaborated on jewelry since Bazyli Studio was launched in 2002. They are both involved in all aspects of the jewelry-making process, including design, embroidery and finish work. Meet the artists on Oct. 1 & 2 and view this ongoing collection.
Linden Gallery, located at the intersection of Hwy. 42 and Mink River Road in Ellison Bay, is open 10 am to 5 pm daily. For more information call 920.854.2487.
