Exhibiting this Season in Ithaca, Atlanta, & Skagway
Last winter I tried on the concept of retirement, but it did not resonate with me. I could not leave the colorful stones and each of you, dear friends who are also the bedrock of my profession. In response, creativity welled with an undercurrent to use gemstones I had been saving, and to try new designs ruminating for many years. Fareed is OK and remarkably still at the bench, and we lovingly craft unusual beauties to adorn you. I have wonderful opportunities in three cities to share my work with you this season.

I am pleased to present a solo exhibit of new jewelry at Maune Contemporary Gallery in collaboration with Atlanta-based art consultant and curator, Kate Chestnutt of Labyrinth Curation. “Radiance Embodied: 50 Years of Lainey Papageorge” will showcase pieces from several bodies of my work, and I could not be more excited to be co-creating with her and highlighting the magic and memories that jewelry can hold.
Skagway, Alaska, now until October 31, reopening April-Oct 2024

With great pleasure I’ve found a new jewelry home in my old Alaska hometown with Shawn Kishnani and his wonderful staff. He’s featuring 25 pieces of my work in a special designer section within his store. He understands fine and unusual gems and was impressed with the fine craftsmanship of my unconventional designs.
