50 international jewelry designers.

Patina Gallery, Santa Fe
April 26 - May 19th, 2024

“Red is the great clarifier—bright, cleansing, and revealing. It makes all other colors beautiful. I can’t imagine becoming bored with red—it would be like becoming bored with the person you love.”
Diana Vreeland

"Over fifty jewelry artists from around the world were invited to make work in which the dominant color is RED. Red has different meanings in various parts of the world, and we
see this in the work presented."
