Francesca Lewis Kennedy brings new work to the Vineyard for her
4th annual Trunk Show at Louisa Gould Gallery in Vineyard
Haven on Saturday, August 16, from 1-5PM. She brings a combination
of fabulous pearls and gemstones, as well as metalsmithed pieces
which includes necklaces, earrings, cuffs, and bangles. She
incorporates meaningful objects and talismans from the around the
world, each with its own unique story.
Francesca is from the Bay area of California, but has a great
affinity for the Vineyard which keeps her coming back every year.
She loves the Chilmark area as a retreat and an inspiration.
The versatility of her jewelry can be worn effortlessly in any
season. The simple elegance of her Tahitian Pearl bangles dress up
jeans and a t-shirt, while her dramatic chalcedony and onyx necklace
is fantastic with that simple black dress. We are very excited about
the new metal pieces: reticulated sterling and brass cuffs,
bracelets, and earrings are all part of an exploration of metal and
what the surfaces can do. She offers pleats, leaves, perforations,
inlays, and overlays for terrific textures. As a former clothing
designer, she is especially excited about working with the metals as
she does with fabric.
Please join us at 54 Main Street, Vineyard Haven from 1-5PM on
Saturday, August 16, light refreshments will be served. For further
