Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - February 8, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta February I, 1974 THE LETHMIDOE HERALD 17 'Sculpt jewels9 transform wearer into walking work of art Artistic visions are translated into jewelry By CARON LE BRL'N DANIKIAN Christian Science Monitor shopping spree that can be called a cultural experience. Visit a museum exhibition and "acquire" an art work that is sculpture as jewelry-as- sculpture Come home with a Mini-sculpture brooch of lapis, gold with freshwater pearls The Rug Drapery Shoppe HAS MOVED to 324-13th Street N. Hoyts North our new phone number is 329-0712 gold pendant by Picasso; a brass pin, silver earrings, or brass necklace by Alexander Calder; an enamel pin by Roy Lichtenstein; and you are adding to your art collection, not merely indulging in expensive baubles Italian sculptor Arnaldo Pomodor's silver kinetic mini-sculpture with movable vertical cylinders can either by displayed at home in a clear lucite case or hung from a silver chain around the neck of the "collector" Unisex jewelry is in vogue, and these portable "body sculptures" are transforming social gatherings into mobile art exhibits. Until recently any jewelry in a museum case had been excavated from archaeological digs or had strong historical significance ancient Greek, Egyptian, or Pre-Columbian jewelry, crown jewels, or works by Cellini.and Faberge but now jewelry is sculpture is jewelry as the Boston Institute of Contemporary Art's recent body sculpture exhibit proved Focusing on the new renaissance of artists creating jewelry (Holbein, Verrochio, and Brunelleschi had done this very thing in the the institute presented an exhibition of 150 pieces of body art by 50 artists. The "sculpt jewels" were brought together by Loretta Yarlow, curator at the Institute of Contemporary Art, from varied private collections, from Sculpture to Wear, Inc., of New York, and from a workshop in Milan, the Gem Montebello Laboratory. Twinkling diamond stars set in a sun-gold firmament and surrounded by blue, enameled clouds suspended from a chain is a miniskyscape by Milva Maglione, guaranteed to transform the wearer into a walking work of art It even comes with its own container- object of lacquered wood in the same design as the Maglione necklace Man Ray translates his artistic visions into jewelry by taking a 1961 drawing and creating "La a gold woman's profile with a lapis lazuli eye, a 1944 object inspires a surrealistic brooch "The and his love of the spiral is seen in cone gold earrings No longer does that price tag escalate in direct relationship to the tangible market value of the precious metals and jewels in the piece With body sculpture, you are in the indefinable realm of art. Intangible qual- ities like artistry and the artist's reputation are also determining factors. The new materials of sculpture are being translated into jewelry lucite, polyester resin plastic, painted anodized aluminum, Plexiglas, stainless steel, wood, crocheted metallic threads, and even rubber Alexander Calder in the 1940's was twist-ng and turning thin ribbons of brass and silver into calligraphic swirls and circular coils of pins, earrings, bracelets and waist-long necklaces, and today sculptor Louise Nevelson is making brooches of black painted wood and gold resembling her sculptural constructions, Marisol has done a ring in 18- karat gold of a self-portrait with diamond eyes; 'and Robert Indiana made his famous "LOVE" letter sculpture into a ring of 18- karat gold Several New England artists are concentrating on jewelry pieces, including necklaces and brooches of "en Resille" enamel and gold by Boston's Margaret Graver; necklaces and bracelets of lame metallic threads, Indian brocades, beads, and buttons by Ruth Nivola of Cambridge, and the very different designs of Boston's Miye Matsukata and New Hampshire's Robert L Morris Miss Matsukata, who was born in Tokyo, draws upon a material used by the ancient Japanese sword-furniture craftsmen, an alloy of copper and pure gold called shakudo. Never before used for the making of jewelry, shakudo is now wed to pearls and the Australian Quilpie opal to create a rich interplay of texture, color, and form. Mr Morris' pieces are bold, geometric, and timeless as he fashions necklaces and earrings of brass and silver where large silver beads and semi-circles have a strong feeling of ancient and primitive jewelry.

It's your University Dear Mr. Lonesome: I un- derstand your problem better than you think You say you are average looking. I know several guys who describe themselves that way. Let me tell you, friend, they are not "average" looking; they are downright hrmely. I am not being Homely guys 'can be good company. Some are brilliant. I just want you to face the facts. When is the last time you asked a plain-looking or home- ly dame out? In this age of girlie magazines, too many men set their standards by what they see in the center- folds. Most of those dillies are pumped so full of silicone they can barely sit up. They are also money-runners, empty- headed and lousy company. I know several homely girls who are interesting and smart, and they have real integrity, qualities that count for the long haul. But you are so busy gawking at the platinum blonde in the mini- skirt that you look right past the gal who has class. Have the courage not to care what your friends say when they see you with a plain-looking lady. Live by a new motto, "Take a dog to dinner." She could turn out to be your dream girl. I Was One Myself Dear One: That letter might have been written by a member of either sex. Plenty of females are so preoccupied with good looks that they are blind to that wonderful guy who would make a marvelous husband. Thank you for writing.- 2nd WEEK BONUS BUYS FLOUR Robin Hood 20 Ib.
