The Tools of Treasures Exhibit

Until 30th April 2017

“We thought, ‘Wouldn’t it be interesting to show the members of the public that all these beautiful pieces of jewelry came from, not what they would consider a tool, but these big chunks of blocks of steel that aren’t pretty at all,’” he says. “We felt it would be the first time that jewelry was ever exhibited with the tools that made it. Especially the die struck jewelry, the period from 1890-1940 when steel was really being used to produce jewelry. We’re able to show you these little treasures next to these tools. And the tools aren’t pretty. And so the juxtaposition of the beauty and the beast to us made us come up with this exhibit.” – Peter DiCristofaro

Opening hours: Fridays only 10:00am – 3:00pm

Admission: $10.00
