The Art Of Jewelry At Guild Hall

The museum at Guild Hall will hold an opening reception on June 28, 2014, for the launch of a limited edition art jewelry line from K Ritt Jewelry and artist Arlene Slavin. Jewelry designer Kim Rittberg partnered with Arlene to create a one-of-a-kind hand made jewelry line inspired by, and using materials from, Arlene's sculpture Intersections, which has recently been installed at Guild Hall.

"We have taken some key elements from my large scale painting and sculpture: the asymmetrical X form, translucent color overlays, using them to create quirky necklaces, pendants and earrings," Arlene said. The special collection features painted vinyl necklaces, earrings, and the "X Necklace," which combine design, color and style to mimic that of the sculpture.

"I've always maintained that my jewelry is wearable art with a sculptural element, and the human body is part of that. I've long been an admirer of Slavin's work, and I'm honored to work with her. She uses color brilliantly, and I love her integration of vinyl and the manner in which it makes nature appear in a different transmuted form," Kim said.

With bright colors and interesting designs, this jewelry line is sure to be a popular Hamptons trend this summer!

Guild Hall is located at 158 Main Street in East Hampton. For more information, visit www.guildhall.org.

Hampton Luxury Liner
Hampton Luxury Liner was started in 2000 as a more luxurious way to travel from NYC to the Hamptons and back. The clientele quickly grew and over the years Hampton Luxury liner became the preferred method of transportation to the Hamptons and NYC for many living in NYC and the Hamptons that wanted a comfortable and affordable way to travel back and forth. In 2009, HLL was taken over by Classic Coach and things with the liner didn’t change to much for years and the owner there changed the buses to Prevost as opposed to Mercedes Setra Top Class Coaches that have always been a signature of the liner.
