Maine photographer Nance Trueworthy holds one day jewelry show at Kennebunkport gallery

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.
