Ok, the exhibition is open. People are lining up to see the fruits of my labor. And you may be asking yourself…just how can I take home a piece of this show?

Well, if you have a few thousand dollars to spare, a Russell Trusso original is available for you in the museum store. And if you don’t have that kind of cash stashed in a tin box under the rose bushes, you can check out the fabulous Mr. Trusso (and myself) in person.

I personally invite you to attend my Artistic’s Dialogue featuring local jewelry designer Russell Trusso, 1 p.m., Sunday, October 26 at the museum. This free Actors Studio type of discussion provides a unique opportunity to hear how the master artists featured in Artistic Luxury: Fabergé, Tiffany, Lalique have directly influenced this renowned local artist’s work.

Russell Trusso, a former Cleveland Clinic neuroanesthesiologist, is known for his breathtaking botanical-themed necklaces, earrings and brooches. Inspired by his love of nature’s beauty, the bold creations are distinguised by their delicate and feminine qualities. Russell uses pearls, diamonds and gemstones to create these exquisite pieces.

His pieces sell for thousands and have been featured in Time, W and countless other publications. Come spend a Sunday afternoon wrapped in luxury and see just what may inspire you.
