Monica Fairbairn Jewelry Show
Join us on Sunday December 16th from 12-5pm for a special event featuring Guild member and Jewelry Artist, Monica Fairbairn.
Monica Fairbairn creates vibrant, colorful designs to fashion unusual necklaces made of beads from Africa, the Americas, the Caribbean, Europe and Asia. Her inspiration comes from a cornucopia of materials adapted for adornment in traditional cultures all over the world, and recalls old ideas transformed into her own modern creations.
Favorite materials include millifiore and chevron beads, clay heishi from Columbia, and African coin metal, bone and sand glass. The Tagua Collection features the sliced and colorfully dyed and polished palm nut, which she imports directly from Quito, Ecuador. Tagua is the foundation of the South American “Ivory” craft industry that uses a renewable native plant resource to support the livelihood of local artisans.
Her work has been shown in local MA galleries, most recently Dedham Square Artist Guild, The Shop at the Arsenal Center for the Arts, Karenna Maraj collection as well as Open Studios in Jamaica Plain, Watertown, Hyde Park, Roslindale, Cambridge, Dedham, Charlestown, and Jamaica in the West Indies. She lives and works in Watertown, MA
