Lend Me Your Ears...Your Neck...Your Wrists...: Featured Artist Trudee Hill

September 7, 2016 - September 28, 2016

Facèré Jewelry Art Gallery is pleased to present "Lend Me Your Ears...Your Neck...Your Wrists...," an exhibition of new work by Trudee Hill. Using her signature square, sterling silver wire to form precise words and phrases, this collection brings new meaning to the term 'statement jewelry'. The right words can inspire and empower. Say what you mean. Wear what you say.


Trudee Hill holds a B.F.A. in Jewelry & Metals from the University of the Arts in Philadelphia. A native of Washington State, Trudee has also lived for extended periods in Hawaii and Estonia, where she completed a Fulbright Fellowship in 2006. In 2001, she stumbled upon jewelry as art while pursuing a degree in photography. The ability to design and fabricate wearable objects is satisfying in a way she had not considered possible in her previous work. Trudee views art jewelry as a form of communication, artist to wearer and wearer to viewer. We all have a story to tell, jewelry provides us with opportunities to connect and share those stories. Trudee Hill is best known for her fabricated, one-of-a-kind jewelry in sterling silver. Square wire is bent, cut, soldered and filed one hundred times over to form precise letters, words, and symbols. Trudee's work can be found in the permanent collection of the Tacoma Art Museum. Do you have a special word or phrase? Custom orders available.
