How is that Fall wardrobe coming along?  Just one brilliant, statement piece can transform an outfit from moody to marvelous. 

Enter highly talented Jeanine A. Guncheon and her 'Found Object jewelry'.  Located on Madison St., in Forest Park, Gallery Etcetera is a visual feast with an inspiring array of home decor specialty items, scupltural art work & truly unique jewelry.  

Jeanine is a self professed 'antique & flea market shop-a-holic' and thankfully for us; as her craft is like none other.  An experimental artist 22 years, Jeanine has created her one of a kind pieces and sold them at art fairs & major art shows, including the Smithsonian.  She is currently taking a break form her large sculptural work, to focus on her books & jewelry.

The look of these signature necklaces is so unusual, with combined metals chains, beading and vintage findings, including war medals, rare coins and religious pieces. 

The day I was there picking out pieces for out Fall Fashion photo shoot, a loyal client was there too, trying to decide which necklace to send a friend in France.  I told her to buy both, of course!
