SALA 2013 “Upper Glass” Exhibition

“Upper Glass”

August 2-25

Opening August 2 at 5.00pm

Local Images Art Gallery Penola

An exhibition of jewellery by Julie Frahm featuring recycled glass made into beads, and other up-cycled components.

 I’ve been collecting, and also been given, a variety of glass over the past few years.  Ranging from beer and wine bottles, to Green Depression Glass, and all sorts of other glass objects, I am turning these old wares into beautiful glass beads to be incorporated into my jewellery pieces.  Along the way I have also found myself accumulating a selection of all sorts of other bits and pieces that I am also using in the jewellery…from vintage sequins to seed beads and old copper to biscuit tins!  Part of the fun of the exhibition will be discovering what “old” things have been used to create these beautiful new pieces.
