Wilkins & Olander Hosts Jewelry Designer Patricia Locke

On Saturday, October 3, from 2 – 4 pm, Wilkins & Olander will host a meet and greet for Chicago-based jewelry designer Patricia Locke. The event will take place at Wilkins & Olander’s Third Avenue location in Sturgeon Bay.

Among America’s premier contemporary jewelry designers, Patricia Locke speaks a distinctive visual language. Locke’s think-for-yourself, statement jewelry blends the depth of fine art with the sensation of fashion at its most provocative. Textural and multi-faceted, her designs reflect the complexity of modern femininity, the confidence and self-possession of a powerful persona.

While Locke’s evocative adornments take inspiration from a wealth of cultural and historic influences – including her own travels, ancient coins, hieroglyphics, architecture, religious totems, and astronomy – she says, “Ultimately, I’m more interested in the future than the past.” Hallmarks of her work include her inspired asymmetry; tantalizing multi-metal combinations; and use of positive-negative space. A master of paradox, Locke’s jewelry is at once handsome and beautiful, organic and geometric, contemporary with heirloom overtones.

Carol Overland, owner of Wilkins & Olander adds, “Patricia Locke is one of the most popular jewelry lines at Wilkins & Olander – so popular that we’ve carried it for over 17 years! We’re so fortunate to have Patricia come visit us here in Sturgeon Bay.
