Online PR News – 24-April-2012 – Lake Geneva, Wisconsin – Diana Ferguson Artisan Jewelry (www.dianafergusonjewelry.com) was recently chosen to include a pair of one-of-a-kind petal earrings in an exclusive collaborative gift bag prepared by The Artisan Group especially for actress Drew Barrymore.
Diana Ferguson Artisan Jewelry is owned by Wisconsin artist and designer Diana Ferguson. For Ms. Barrymore, Diana chose to create a pair of extra long dangle earrings in her popular Petal style. The earrings are visually strong but lightweight and easy to wear since Ferguson constructs them with resin-coated paper and anodized aluminum. Ferguson says she wanted to gift Barrymore earrings that would be versatile enough to wear for a casual day out but could also add drama to an evening look. “I choose a striking but subtle palette of blues and browns for the earrings that I think will complement Drew’s coloring,” said Ferguson. “I hope she enjoys wearing them as much as I enjoyed making them for her.”
The Barrymore-inspired petal earrings are reflective of Ferguson’s focus on mixed media and metal pieces that push the boundaries of jewelry design. “Most recently, I’ve been experimenting with paper jewelry. Paper is an amazingly formable material that I can manipulate almost like sheet metal,” said Ferguson. “The potential for incorporating my collage and digital art on paper into my work is exciting and represents limitless possibilities for including color and pattern in the designs.”
Diana creates out of her home studio in Lake Geneva, Wisconsin, where she lives with her husband, artist Kenneth Ferguson. She sells her work at juried invitational shows around the country, as well as on her website (http://www.dianafergusonjewelry.com) and Etsy (http://www.dianafergusonjewelry.etsy.com). Next up, she will be traveling to Kansas City, Missouri to take part in the Brookside Art Annual, a competitive juried invitational event showcasing about 200 artists.
