ASHER HOLIDAY SOIREE &
TRUNK SHOW WITH MARIQUITA MASTERSON
November 10 – 11, 2017
Asher Gallery at Houston Center for Contemporary Craft
WHAT: Asher Gallery at Houston Center for Contemporary Craft is pleased to present a special holiday soiree and trunk show with celebrated Houston jeweler, Mariquita Masterson. Guests will enjoy good cheer, bubbly, and sweets, while they mingle with Mariquita and shop an extended selection of her stunning glass jewelry–including rings, necklaces, earrings, and cuff links.
Mariquita Masterson has created jewelry for over 30 years. The idea for her unique and timeless designs came to her while working with a glass blower to design a table setting for a museum gala in Houston. When she saw the chunks of crystal ready to be fired in the furnace, she realized this material would be absolutely beautiful in jewelry settings. Her designs come directly from her love of crystal, as well as a lovely selection of colors, set in sterling silver and in vermeil. Mariquita uses both recycled glass and glass from companies that produce a variety of colors and textures.
Asher Gallery, located within Houston Center for Contemporary Craft, offers an incredible selection of one-of-a-kind jewelry, gifts, home decor, and wearables by a curated selection of locally and nationally known craft artists.
