New Jewelry in a New Medium


“New Jewelry in a New Medium”, an exhibition of polymer art opens today on the Balboa Campus of the Mingei International Museum in San Diego, California.   The show focuses on individual beads and beaded adornments such as necklaces and bracelets.  The art work on view came to the Mingei through the efforts of Elise Winters and her Museum Collection Project and from the collection of the Bead Museum formerly in Glendale, Arizona.    This exhibition debuts both collections to the public.

“New Jewelry in a New Medium” will run from December 17, 2011 through June 17, 2012.
