Jewelry featured at Hoosier Artist Gallery

The Hoosier Artist Gallery, 45 S. Jefferson St., features the work of Anne Ryan Miller and Ruth Wert during October.

Wert, a well-known multimedia artist, designs jewelry using antique pieces that are incorporated into natural stone, bead and pearl creations. She also creates hand-dyed silk that is framed in leaded stained glass, and weaves grass Nantucket-style baskets.

Miller’s love for nature provides inspiration for her works in stained glass. Metal overlay applied to the glass is her unique signature. Miller also creates transformed photography using luster paper and nature as her subject.
