DAVIS & LANGDALE COMPANY, 231 EAST 60TH STREET, NEW YORK, ESTABLISHED IN 1952, announces its forthcoming exhibition:

BESSIE JAMIESON: JEWELRY


beginning Saturday, November 16th and continuing through February 1st, 2014.

BESSIE JAMIESON: JEWELRY will consist of hand-made necklaces, earrings, bracelets, and pins of 22-karat gold with precious and semi-precious gemstones, including antique rose-cut diamonds. JAMIESON draws on ancient, classical, Byzantine, and medieval jewelry to inspire her own designs. Her jewelry is contemporary, yet rooted in the past.

BESSIE JAMIESON began her career in jewelry design as an apprentice to Robert Kulicke at the Kulicke-Stark Academy in New York. JAMIESON is the former owner and director of the Jewelry Arts Institute in New York (a descendant of the Kulicke-Stark Academy), where she taught traditional techniques of classical jewelry. Her pieces have been exhibited annually at Davis & Langdale Company since 1980.

JAMIESON was featured in a film demonstrating the art of granulation, shown at The Bard Graduate Center for Studies in the Decorative Arts, Design, and Culture in conjunction with the exhibition The Castellani and Italian Archaeological Jewelry (2004). JAMIESON has also given lectures to the staff of The Cloisters on classical jewelry making techniques.
