Fine Line Designs Gallery welcomes August Nine Designs, a contemporary jewelry line, to the gallery for a two-day trunk show Aug. 3 & 4. The show’s hours for the weekend are 10 am to 5 pm on Friday and 10 am to 4 pm on Saturday.
August Nine Designs is the work of Austin Titus, and one look at her work will give many clues to her love of the organic. Cast forms from nature, circles, and coils display prominently in her work, which she creates her pieces in a light-filled studio surrounded by dense trees and pond views in her home of Richmond, Virginia.
A balance and trade-off of industrial and organic lends itself well to how Titus describes her work – “handmade jewelry with a delicate edge.” A piece may have multiple layers of thin metal sheets in a nest-like form: conveying the strength and the fragility of a flower petal.
In addition to the August Nine trunk show, Aug. 4-5 is the last weekend to catch Fine Line’s second summer exhibit, featuring Door County artists Pamela Murphy and Stephanie Evans. Exhibit II will be up through Aug. 6. For more information, visit finelinedesignsgallery.com or call 920.854.4343.
