Rachel Hawkinson's “Flying Frippery” show is on display through June 30 at Scarlow's Gallery, 122 W. Second St. The show features a series of jewelry art that expresses the feeling of being free and asks what makes personal adornment more than a simple accessory.
"Jewelry is a talisman. A totem. An expression of who we are. A way of life. Freedom… In a world of accessories, these brooches have the ability to transform themselves into something more," according to the gallery website. "What if, while not being worn, jewelry had a place to be, a purpose? Flying Frippery dives into that concept. These pieces can stand on their own as simplified bird brooches. Once coupled with a display, they can ascend from personal adornment into visual art."
