Wearable Expressions Exhibition

This is a busy month for VOSTENAKStudios! In addition to Milan Fashion Week and the globalDESIGN show, Valerie’s sculptural art jewelry will be exhibited at the Wearable Expressions 7th International Juried Exhibition at the Palos Verdes Art Center in Rancho Palos Verdes, CA, from February 10-April 16.

Wearable Expressions began within a group of Palos Verdes Art Center fiber and jewelry artists who wanted to show art-to-wear as a serious artistic medium.  We congratulate Valerie for the honor to appear with this distinguished group of international artists and jurors.

We are pretty proud of Valerie and her accomplishments.

See Valerie at The globalDESIGN Show

As one of just 15 extraordinary artists in the nation, Valerie will be exhibiting her jewelry in Baltimore, MD, February 22 & 23 with the globalDESIGN 2017 show. Created in 2001, by Cindy Edelstein of the Jeweler’s Resource Bureau, The globalDESIGN show offers a way to bring outstanding international talent to the attention of the gallery and store owners who come to Baltimore in February for the fine-art jewelry and crafts on display.

According to globalDESIGN, The show was “created to answer a need expressed by jewelry shop and gallery owners for a greater variety of  designer jewelry, particularly for those exquisite pieces made outside the United States, than could be found in this country’s major craft shows that by policy restricted  exhibitors to only those who made their products in the United States and Canada.”

If you are in the Baltimore area or plan to be traveling there late next month, consider stopping by and saying hello. Valerie would love to see you.

Winter Shimmer Season

Take a look around–what are your thoughts when you witness someone wearing bold jewelry? What about small, sparkling diamonds or a multi-hued pearl? A simple, languid bracelet? Jewelry holds power. It has the capability take on the depths and stratum of your history, your story. A simple change in earrings, a neckpiece or bracelet can enrich or alter your narrative.  What message do you want to send today?

Classic VOSTENAKstudios

Classic VOSTENAK to me captures the romantic, sensuous curves with beautiful gemstones contrasted with hardened steel. Her designs are feminine to their core as each piece is tantamount to womanly softness combined with strength. Whenever I wear one of Valerie’s pieces, I feel beautiful and strong. Each piece reminds me that I am enough. I can be both strong and feminine without sacrificing who I am. I can live my passion and I can be fearless. I feel empowered.
