Lousiana's own Paula Crevoshay will be the topic of an exhibit at The Natural History Museum of Los Angeles County (NHM) from December 7th to May 12th of next year. “Art of the Jewel: The Crevoshay Collection” will focus on the artistic combination of science and jewelry design that Crevoshay implements into her work. According to a press release, attendees will be walked through her process “from mineral to gem to jewel."
Among the 50 featured pieces, those included will range from bracelets, brooches, and pairs of earrings. Crevoshay will be curating the collection, which will be put on display in the Gem Vault of NHM’s Gem and Mineral Hall.
Chervoshay's an industry veteran with expertise gained from educational facilities and experiences in Sri Lanka, India, Tibet, and other areas of Southeast Asia. Known as the "Queen of Color" to some, her work as a painter and printmaker allowed her a unique transition into the world of jewelry. The Smithsonian, Carnegie Museum of Natural History, as well as the museum of the Gemological Institute of America, houses a number of her permanent collections.
