Artist of the Month

Berkeley Grimball Jewelry

A few years ago I took an old clarinet into the repair shop and was told that it was not worth overhauling. Having been a jeweler my entire life I thought, “Mmm, beautiful dense black wood already machined into a tube, the circle is the perfect shape, and everything looks good in black,” and Clarinet Jewelry was born. At the time I was still running Grimball Jewelers in Chapel Hill NC. After thirty three years we closed it and I am having so much fun getting back to my roots of designing and creating pieces using recycled grenadilla wood from no longer playable clarinets. When I first started making jewelry in college my roommate and I  had three tools and two techniques we used to make simple wire pieces, but I found that I was able to access my creativity within that very limited box. Now I am loving the box of only making pieces which incorporate wood from clarinets and I love that the wood that once made beautiful music is now making art.  If a piece speaks(sings) to you I hope you enjoy wearing it as much as I did creating it.

Three Wednesday’s a month, Brenda, Diane and Jila transform the Gallery into a safe and healthy art studio so they can share their mastery with you. All this, while enjoying GOURMET BITES AND ADULT BEVERAGES! Best of all, you go home with a greater appreciation for the work and a piece made with your own hands. You'll find our ART NIBBLE is simply delicious!
