ASHER HOLIDAY SOIREE & TRUNK SHOW WITH MARIQUITA MASTERSON

Join Asher Gallery for a special holiday soiree and trunk show with celebrated Houston jeweler, Mariquita Masterson.

Indulge in good cheer, bubbly, and sweets, while you mingle with Mariquita and shop an extended selection of her jewelry–including rings, necklaces, earrings, and cuff links.  What better way to find fabulous and unique holiday gifts for your loved ones or something special for yourself?  As usual, you’ll also find an incredible selection of one-of-a-kind home decor, wearables, and other gifts by the many featured artists of Asher Gallery.  HCCC members save 10%.

Friday, November 10, 5:30 – 8:00 PM
Saturday, November 11, 11:00 AM – 4:00 PM

Mariquita Masterson has created jewelry for over 30 years.  The idea for her unique and timeless designs came to her while working with a glass blower to design a table setting for a museum gala here in Houston. When she saw the chunks of crystal ready to be fired in the furnace, she realized this material would be absolutely beautiful in jewelry settings.  Her designs come directly from her love of crystal, as well as a lovely selection of colors, set in sterling silver and in vermeil. Mariquita uses both recycled glass and glass from companies that produce a variety of colors and textures. Occasionally, she also gets lucky, and an antique vase shows up in pieces, allowing her to make something incredibly stunning from the wreckage.
