Twenty Two West - The Handmade Art & Jewelry of Mary Hamby

This coming Friday evening from 5-7 and Saturday 10 - 4, we are excited to have long-time gallery friend, Mary Hamby, back in the gallery with her incredible handmade and artful jewelry for a one-day pop up. In addition to the jewelry you know and love, Hamby will be bringing her gorgeous woven blocks and a few beginners loom kits. Any of these would make a fabulous and unique gift for that artsy in your life. Read below and watch the video above to learn a bit more about Hamby’s goal and process with Twenty Two West.

“I am a full time artist working out of my studio in Charlotte, North Carolina. The name of my business, Twenty Two West, comes from a place that inspires me - the address of the home where I grew up in Greenville, South Carolina. My goal is to combine nostalgic roots with modern designs in each of my handmade pieces. I use the classic techniques of weaving, ceramics, and woodworking to create wearable art and to build approachable sculptures that suit the modern home.

 My interior design background pointed my aesthetic toward character-driven art that has a clear focus and an emphasis on texture. My art has been a way to connect with other craftspeople for sourcing handspun, naturally dyed fibers, sustainably sourced wood, and community driven ceramics.” - Mary Hamby

Works will be available in-store during our Holiday Cocktail Crawl Friday evening from 5pm - 7pm and Saturday from 10am - 4pm. If you are not local and are interested in anything, please send us a message or give the gallery a ring during regular gallery hours.
