The word “jewelry” is from the Latin work “jocale” meaning plaything. (Grove Dictionary of Art, Oxford Art Online)
Allison Norfleet Bruenger
Jewelry is as old as humankind. Whether coming from a primitive culture or modern civilization of the West or East, and regardless of material and style, humans of both genders and all age groups have the need for self-adornment.
In prehistoric times, as well as in contemporary cultures, jewelry is not only ornamentation for the body, but also a means of communication.
Jewelry is often associated with treasure—gold, gemstones, valuable materials—and is considered to be objects of intrinsic beauty, though the early beginnings were very different.It was not until a later stage of human development that people chose precious and scarce materials from far-away for jewelry.
Jewelry is not only a sign of wealth and taste, but also reflect—and communicate—the personal character and temperament of the wearer.
Missouri Artist On Main offers a large selection of contemporary jewelry for your consideration. And, we wish to congratulate Rosanne Sartori on becoming the newest MAOM artist to become a juried member of the Best of Missouri Hands.
