Bree Richey Jewelry Featured at Smith Galleries

Smith Galleries is featuring a jewelry exhibition by Bree Richey titled "Sunlight and Shadow." The exhibition opens on May 1, 2012 and continues through the end of May.

Bree Richey’s jewelry collection pulls directly from her love for Art Deco and modern architectural design. She often finds inspiration for her work in the clean lines of modern furniture, the fluid pattern of fabric, and the vibrant color of fine gems and pearls. All of these elements are apparent in her work, where metal forms and an array of colored gems are brought together seamlessly to create elegant and highly wearable jewelry.

Ms. Richey was recently named the winner of the inaugural Future of Design contest, a business incubator competition for jewelry designers created by Cindy Edelstein of the Jeweler’s Resource Bureau and Andrea Hill of StrategyWerx.

Richey comes from a family of jewelry designers but found her own passion for the craft when she attended the Boston Museum School of Fine Arts. Continuing her education at the Revere Academy of Jewelry Arts in San Francisco, Richey went on to apprentice with jewelers and focused on creating pieces that were affordable to the average jewelry consumer.

Smith Galleries is located in the Village at Wexford, Suite J11 (UPSTAIRS), on Hilton Head Island. Gallery hours are 10 - 6 Monday through Saturday. 843-842-2280
