Bead Society Orange County

invites you to a special presentation by Lisa M. Berman

Jewelry has always been used as a utility to convey a non-verbal message – whether it be status, social commentary, an acknowledgment of celebration, events, or a direct political stance. From Madeline Albright and the “Brooching it Diplomatically” Book / Exhibition curated by Helen Drutt to the Exhibition “Feel the Frill” curated by the speaker honoring Ruther Bader Ginsberg, and the soon to be launched “Only Strong Women Wear Big Jewelry” from Slovakia. Jewelry is a catalyst for conversation.
