Sepia Jewels - Inspiration From a Historical Past Time

Se.pi.a :

 A reddish-brown color associated particularly with monochrome photographs of the 19th and early 20th centuries.

Beautiful and delicate comes to mind when looking at antiquated letters.  The deliberate strokes from the dip pen make the words even more enchanting.
The idea of Sepia Jewels first surfaced when a Victorian poem journal was given to me.  Each page was adorned with amazing handwritten script that sparked my appreciation of writing.  I immediately thought of small jewels that would be accented by this historical past time.

The Sarah McCleery Necklace

 This particular piece was experimental.  I wanted to layer different vintage materials of an antique crocheted flower accented with a mother of pearl button on a Victorian handwritten script.
I felt that the design was strong and will pave the way for more similar designs.

Among the Victorian handwritten letters, I also wanted to include pieces that would accent the theme of writing.
Vintage European Stamps were upcycled to whimsical adornments accented by Czech glass beads that have been fire polished in opalescent hues.

Union & Sepia Jewels Exhibit - Michael Douglas Jones - Terah Ware

 The UNION Exhibition 

will open in 

Boonsboro, Maryland 

February 4th - 29th

Opening Reception
February 4th, 1-3pm

 I am pleased to announce this upcoming exhibition.  A collection of mixed media art/journals that commemorate the sesquicentennial of the American Civil War. 
Michael Douglas Jones displays layers of history with splendid antiquity.  Visual stories that are told from assemblage artifacts.

 When I first heard that Michael would be exhibiting his work at the "Gifts Inn Boonsboro" Gallery.  I immediately thought how wonderful it would be to have a dual show.  His work captivated me many years ago when I was visiting the Delaplaine Visual Arts Center in Frederick, MD.  I remember completely relating to his way of communication...through his work of art.  
He was, by far, the artist who had a voice who spoke clearly and precisely...

It is with great pleasure that my new collection, "Sepia Jewels" of antique letters, wax seals, Edwardian lorgnette, and calligraphy nibs will be among these stories of old.

 "The Union exhibition includes a series of collage pieces that follow a personal journey through the fictional journals and love letters of a cavalry courier between 1861 and 1865. A slideshow of the art pieces are available here, and the book is available here."

Time's Great Morning - Poetry

                                                                                                                        Love - 1895 - Klimt 
 Time's Great Morning

Come to me today
fill your eyes with emerald green
carry with you our secret
of this forbidden lay
that we mask and disguise
to mold and solve on each wicked goodbye
watermark my body
with thy lips
embellish our destiny
with your gaze
secure our misfortunes
by looking away
melt your uncertainty
with my warm honey
take heed on this majestic discovery
a dream, our fate
that soars above the scattered tree's canopy
a belief, our story
that can be met
in the realm of Time's great morning
this is never ending
I will be thy lady for eternity
