  • Julie Anne Mihalisin, Necklace, 1993, silver, glass, Smithsonian American Art Museum, Gift of Sylvia and Eric Elsesser, 2002.72.3

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.
