Brooch: Sweetgum, pine fern, quail feather

Ann Jenkins

Bar Harbor Main

Ann Jenkins is a former resident of Louisville. The work is this series is made up of a variety of materials including sterling and fine silver, hand blown glass, acrylic and natural objects.

Her "Fragments of Nature" series are geometric jewelry forms which serve as reliquaries for fragile bits of the life that surrounds us. The unique beauty of a single strand of seaweed, the fragile structure of lichen or the fascinating pattern on a moth's wing are worthy of our attention - as precious as any gem. And infinitely interesting in form, color and design.
