The Los Angeles Guild Presents
Art of the Jewel: The Crevoshay Collection at the NHMLA
Guild members and trade friends will have a special opportunity to meet Paula Crevoshay in an intimate setting to hear her story of how she arrived where she is today. You'll receive a private tour of this unique exhibit by Paula and Dr. Celestian, the NHM Gems & Minerals Department curator.
Join Paula for lunch and a personal tour of The Crevoshay Collection, an exhibition that explores the art and science behind her sparkling creations, from mineral to gem to jewel.
Accompanied by loose gems and minerals from the Museum’s collections, "Art of the Jewel" features over 50 dazzling pieces of jewelry, including earrings, bracelets, and brooches made of tourmaline, sapphire, moonstone, pearl, and black diamond, among others. Paula’s designs take the shape of plants and animals like orchids, butterflies, and spiders.
“It is my belief that masterpieces arise only from a synthesis and integration of the disciplines of art and science and the natural world,” says Paula. “I hope to take the viewer on a journey of contemplation of the marvel of creation, and their own special place in this wonderful, interconnected world.”
