Jenne Rayburn Jewelry Accepted Into The Lexington Arts And Crafts Society
The Lexington Arts and Crafts Society was founded in 1935 as a non-profit regional education center dedicated to the preservation and promotion of excellence in both traditional and contemporary arts and crafts. With the objective to encourage higher artistic standards, the Society continually invites original local and emerging artists to be members to ensure that traditional crafts endure, are valued and are available to the public. "The work on display at the LACS is simple and elegant, made from primarily sterling silver and semi-precious gemstones," notes Rayburn. "My designs are rooted in traditional metalsmithing techniques, yet interpreted with a modern esthetic that celebrates materials with minimal embellishment. I hope my work is seen as timeless, and as statement jewelry that can be dressed up or down and always make the wearer look and feel fabulous."
With nearly 400 members, in nine guilds, the Lexington Arts and Crafts Society has provided a place artists can gather, work, inspire one another and keep craft traditions alive for over 77 years.
The Lexington Arts and Crafts Society houses a gallery to showcase the works of the artists of the Society. For more information go to:
Jenne Rayburn is a Boston-based jewelry/textile artist who also studied interior design and architecture, and her work explores the convergence of architecture, design, technique and identity. Jenne is known for her work that combines vintage textiles, findings and components, with contemporary jewelry and accessory designs. A graduate of the University of Washington where she studied metalsmithing and fiber arts, and of the University of Massachusetts, Amherst with a MS in Design, Jenne has been designing jewelry and accessories for over 20 years. Perpetual curiosity and a passion for experimentation resulted in her first jewelry collection made from etched copper and brilliantly colored enamel. Since then, Jenne has created six unique collections of jewelry and fashion accessories that combine careful workmanship with unique materials and designs. It is her hope that the wearers of her pieces will find joy in a delightful artistic statement, and also something that enhances their individuality and confidence. Her work is carried in local galleries and online. Please visit http://www.jennerayburn.com for Jenne Rayburn's online flagship store.
