What women want


BRECKENRIDGE – It’s a woman’s paradise: jewelry, chocolate and wine. What more could you ask for?Melissa’s Fine Art Gallery in Breckenridge presents Jewelry, Chocolate and Wine from 4-6 p.m. today. The show features Colorado artists Kimberly Trenchard, Kari Heyborck and Camie Cuypers. “The open house focuses on woman – a feminine, girl-type thing – and for me, wine and jewelry is the ultimate fun thing to do,” said Melissa Gledhill, gallery owner. “Jewelry has been a popular item, and I have some unique jewelry here, so we decided to focus on those artists.”Trenchard specializes in beadwork using semi-precious gemstones, such as turquoise and quartz. Cuypers mostly works with crystals and freshwater pearls.”Kimberly’s style is a little more earthy, while Cami’s is a little more dainty and delicate,” Gledhill said.Heyborck focuses on beaded lampwork.”She’s my most unique jeweler because she makes her own beads out of Venetian glass,” Gledhill said.In addition to jewelry, Gledhill offers wood-carved mountain scene paintings, coffee art (watercolor paper painted with coffee), black-and-white photos, candles and handpainted wine glasses and mugs.”I try to have a balance between fine art and fun gift items that are handmade,” she said.”There will be an incredible selection of styles – a little something for everyone,” Trenchard said.Kimberly Nicoletti can be reached at (970) 668-3998, ext. 245, or at knicoletti@summitdaily.com.
