The Queen's Park Gallery presents their new Exhibition Fragments - An Exhibition of hand-crafted Jewellery by Andrea Wells.
In addition to her 'Sea Gems' and 'Fragments' (which incorporates blue and white china shards) collections, Andrea explores our African and Amerindian heritage experimenting with different colour schemes and symbolic beads and pendants which also tell a story. The spiritual practices, rituals and the decorative elements of these groups are a source of inspiration. The work in this series are very impactful, but never lose their delicacy and unique charm.
These characteristics and the mixture of media inform the design of her jewellery in the choice of balance, pattern and texture. Andrea Wells' Jewellery has been appreciated and acquired by persons of varied cultures around the world. Her collectors range from the English, Belgians, Dominicans, French, Canadians, Brazilians, Americans, Caribbean and Japanese.Wherever she exhibits, her work sells. She is inspired by the classic principles of jewellery design but with a modern "edge". Wearing an Andrea Wells piece always adds that "Wow" factor to your entrance!!
