Luce Center Quote

"Entrenched notions of beauty and rarity are . . . questioned, as these traditional materials are used in an untraditional way . . ." Artist's statement

Luce Center Label

By using glass instead of gemstones or enamel paints, Julie Anne Mihalisin questions preconceived ideas about the role of jewelry and the "preciousness" of materials. The artist also strives to express the concept of captured movement in her work.
