Nance Trueworthy’s necklaces of semi-precious stones and pearls will be on display at Home & Away Gallery in Kennebunkport at a one day trunk show on Saturday May 7, from 11 AM to 5 PM.

Trueworthy creates uncommon, one-of a-kind designs. The process begins when she carefully selects each strand of freshwater pearls and fine gemstones. This is followed by the design phase. Faced with pearls and gemstones in a myriad of colors and shapes, she allows each design to emerge organically. Her patience in working with the materials pays off in exceptional combinations of colors and textures that are both pleasing and fun.

Lovers of nature have admired Nance Trueworthy’s fine photographs for decades.
About five years ago, Trueworthy became inspired by her love for the earth and sea to design necklaces that are simple, but elegant. As an example, one necklace combines seafoam chalcedony with pearls and tiny turquoise beads; another combines faceted dark amethyst with citrine beads. The colors and textures of the necklaces please and surprise at the same time.

David Shultz, Home & Away Gallery Director, says “Customers look through our jewelry cases and are immediately attracted to Trueworthy’s colorful pieces. Though she is not Native American, her work stands out alongside award-winning Native American jewelry. We hear from our customers that Nance’s jewelry adds color and sparkle to their wardrobe.”

Though her work is elegant, Trueworthy’s jewelry is designed for everyday use. Her desire is for customers to feel special when they don her necklaces. Why save this feeling for special occasions? Why not feel special every day?
