Stanstead Journal - - LEN NOXVILLE NEWS - Coat­i­cook

TheBeaulne Mu­seum is proud to present the ex­hibit The Jew­ellery Box...A Collection of the Beaulne Mu­seum from the 13th of April to the 19th of Oc­to­ber 2014. The pub­lic and the press are cor­dially in­vited to come and dis­cover this new ex­hi­bi­tion.

An as­pect of body em­bel­lish­ment, jew­ellery, which comes in many forms and has many func­tions, can be com­posed of var­i­ous types of ma­te­ri­als. Made of seashells and an­i­mal teeth dur­ing pre­his­toric times, metal jew­ellery only ap­peared dur­ing An­tiq­uity where gold was trans­formed by gold­smiths us­ing dif­fer­ent tech­niques. Since then, di­verse metals and ma­te­ri­als were used: cop­per, metal, plas­tic, etc. Lav­ish and lux­u­ri­ous jew­ellery, cus­tom jew­ellery and hand­made jew­ellery are the prin­ci­pal groups in which a piece of jew­ellery may be clas­si­fied as so­cial, es­thetic, sen­ti­men­tal, use­ful, etc.

This ex­hi­bi­tion re­groups, apart from the ma­te­ri­als used, many types of jew­ellery all from the collection of the Beaulne Mu­seum such as: bracelets, pen­dants, brooches, ear­rings, neck­laces, etc. In to­tal, 77 care­fully cho­sen pieces are await­ing vis­i­tors.
