Catch Emily Cobb’s Naturelicious Jewelry in Philly #WearableWednesday
I’m so thankful I had coffee with Rachel Zimmerman of InLiquid, the hub of artists in Philadelphia. InLiquid has been working with historic Park Towne Place in Philadelphia to transform their lobby into a revolving art gallery. Their current installation, part of Design Philadelphia, combines Emily Cobb’s jewelry with Lisa Graf’s sculptural work. Emily creates graceful nature inspired pieces that often use 3D printing. Each presents like an eternal storybook, and this is purposeful as she is drawn to Chris Van Allsburg’s book The Mysteries of Harris Burdick. Here’s a description of the necklace above, Become Undone: The Whale.
With his last breath the whale breached towards the sky, and the gulls carried him away to the other blue sea.
A fine example of her work (translate to “I really need to own this someday”) is the piece Become Undone: The Dove. I really don’t think I’ve ever seen something so graceful that embodies movement around the neck. The cool part is the art is just as happy displayed on a table or wall as it is perched on the body.
Emily will be creating a large custom piece for the show, which sounds very exciting. As for Lisa Graf, you’re going to enjoy her curvacious sculptures as well. They might not be wearable, but they do go well with the arcs in Emily’s work and the Mid-Century Modern architecture of the building.
Check it out:

If you need something appropriate to wear, you might consider our iNecklace. It combines aluminum sophistication with the geeky tech of a pulsing LED. Pair it with black and you’ll be good for any art event around the world.
