North Norfolk District Council’s public art gallery welcomes local artist Bev Harding with a collection of jewellery.
Cromer resident Bev has been making costume jewellery and gifts for over 25 years.
This intricate collection demonstrates a variety of craft techniques, many of which have been self-taught. Bev’s jewellery showcases gemstones and pearls, as well as interesting reclaimed and recycled elements, some beachcombed around Norfolk’s coast.
Bev said: “My work really reflects where I live and where I come from; the reclaimed items I use come direct from my environment, while the beauty that can be created from silver and gemstones mirrors seas and skies and the light we experience here in Norfolk.
“I’m so pleased to be able to exhibit at the District Council.”
Bev’s exhibits will be for sale and she is available to make bespoke commissions in the run-up to Christmas.
Cllr Becky Palmer Cabinet Member for Leisure and Culture said: “It’s great to be able to offer craftspeople and artists a space to exhibit their works. This is a lovely collection of handmade jewellery and we are pleased to be able to host them.”
Exquisite Crystals runs from 24 November, 2016 to 25 January, 2017 at the NNDC offices gallery in Holt Road, Cromer.
The 1st Floor Gallery is open to the public Monday, Tuesday and Thursday 8.30am-5pm; Wednesday 10am-5pm; Friday 8.30am-4.30pm. NNDC seeks to offer free opportunities to local artists to display their work in the well-lit gallery and in turn provides staff and visitors to the building the opportunity to see a variety of different artists’ work. Currently six exhibitions are held annually.
