Two great art openings this weekend

On December 10, from 5 – 7 pm, join Destiny Allison Fine Art as we welcome renowned jeweler, Cynthia Jones. 

Destiny Allison Fine Art gallery is holding a jewelry trunk show, featuring the work of jeweler Cynthia Jones. There is an understated feminine certitude to the delicately fashioned jewelry of Cynthia Jones. Her hand-crafted pieces are very contemporary, and convey a sense of unfettered spatiality, accomplished by just the right amount of strength built into the construct of her designs. The work is a reflection of Cynthia herself, an artist whose confidence in her own abilities and engineering sense has set her imagination free. 

Cynthia received a B.S. in Metalsmithing/Jewelry from Southern Connecticut State University, afterwards entering a two-year apprenticeship with a jeweler where she honed her technical and business skills. Her signature CJJ line of work is found in stores and galleries across the country. 

Cynthia will have a large collection of her surprisingly affordable work at the trunk show, and mention this newsletter to receive a 10% discount on all the items she brings. To view Cynthia’s full collection of earrings, bracelets, neck pieces and rings, go to
