Phoenix Art Museum to feature jewelry artist Rosa Kilgore at Jewelry Trunk Show

PHOENIX - Arizonar -- The Museum Store at Phoenix Art Museum will showcase a Jewelry Trunk Show featuring Arizona-based artist Rosa Kilgore Jewelry on Saturday, February 8, 2020 from 12:00 pm until 3:00 pm.

Renown Southwest jeweler and metalsmith Rosa Kilgore is a 5th generation Arizonan from a rich lineage of southwestern artisans, gallerists and collectors. She attended The Orme School and DePaul University where she garnered national awards in jewelry making. Kilgore has always been drawn to the medium of metal eventually studying casting and fabrication techniques with a Navajo silversmith, Dorothy Jeffrey. Recognized by Phoenix Magazine, the Phoenix Art Museum, and Sanctuary's Camelback Resort, Kilgore has solidified herself as a respected Arizona artist who creates heirloom-quality jewelry.

A trained silversmith, most of her pieces are first fabricated in silver and then molded for casting. Her work is created using the lost wax casting method, combined with other ancient and modern techniques, featuring sterling silver, ancient bronze, pyrite, cultured pearls, and semiprecious stones. Kilgore's jewelry is textured, raw, and has a southwestern perspective, "When designing my jewelry, I prioritize versatility and personal style, I want my jewelry to be easy to wear, easy to mix, and timeless." Rosa Kilgore works out of her pine forest home studio in Flagstaff and Studio AFUERA in Scottsdale. Her jewelry is sold in galleries and fine boutiques in Idaho, Colorado, New Mexico, Texas, Montana, and Arizona.
