Wearable Art Trunk Show

This one-day sale features unique jewelry and leatherwork collections by two skilled artisans: Tia Kramer and Martha Kirk.

Seattle-based Tia Kramer designs elegant, modern jewelry crafted from sterling silver and handmade Philippine plant fiber paper. Her earrings, necklaces, pins and other accessories are found in galleries, museums and museum stores, including Seattle Art Museum and the Netherlands’ CODA museum.

From Kramer’s artist statement: “Inspired by our relationships to the natural and architectural environment, I create jewelry objects that make visible our interactions with structure and movement. My adornments are performative sculptures for one’s ears, architecture for the body.”

Leather artist Martha Kirk has called Vashon home for over three decades. With various leathers and stitching techniques, she creates chic accessories with rustic charm, running the gamut from bracelets to wallets and purses to tote bags. Kirk spent years restoring antique cowboy gear and developed an affinity for “doing things the old-fashioned way,” and in her original line, strikes the perfect balance of fashion and functionality.

When you are out enjoying the Art Studio Tour, be sure to stop by VAA for this fabulous Trunk Show—an opportunity to accessorize for the winter season or hunt for gifts just in time for the holidays. Champagne and chocolates will be served!
