Sarah Chapman will be the featured artist during Turtle Ridge Gallery-Boutique’s jewelry trunk show July 17-18.
Her designs mix industrial lines and burnished metal with the soft palate of polished precious and semiprecious stones. Natural forms – seedlings and stylized leaves, squat cicadas, tightly coiled nests of gemstones, the curve of an insect wing – are wrought in silver, copper, gold and stones. Puzzle-box pendants alternately conceal and reveal freely moving pearls.
Turtle Ridge Gallery-Boutique (turtleridgegallery.com), 11736 Mink River Road in Ellison Bay, is open daily, 10 am – 5 pm.
