Rene´ Henry - You Got Glitter in My Bubblegum!
Artist: Rene´ Henry
Materials: sterling silver, resin
I’m a studio jeweler working in Houston, TX. I relocated here in 2016 for an artist residency at Houston Center for Contemporary Craft and since then I have been teaching workshops and making studio jewelry. My work has been shown internationally and has been published in SNAG’s, Jewelry and Metals Survey (JaMS); Showcase 500 Art Necklaces by Lark Publishing, and The 2016 Contemporary Jewelry Exchange. Recent exhibitions include Surf Report at Galerie Marzee, Architectonic at The Foundry Arts Center and Not-So-Lone-Star Studios: A Gathering of Texas Makers. I was awarded “Best in Show” at Ware/Wear at Pocosin Art Center and “Best Use of Materials” at Spirit and Matter at the Jung Center.
“You got glitter in my bubblegum!” is a one-off ring and is very different from my usual work. A pink bubblegum cloud from a cartoon universe wit a silver lining. It is hand engraved with a bubble texture and filled with foamy resin with a hint of sparkle.
