Intro
To tempt, to seduce, to bewitch, to entrap, to wink, to flash, to caution, to scream. The duality of Sirens conjures vivid images that can be linked to the powerful capabilities of jewelry.

Artist list

Melanie Bilenker, Leslie Boyd, Sarah Rachel Brown, Emily Cobb, Maria Eife, Mallory Weston
Sirens is a collection of new work from the JV Collective, a group of six female artists based in Philadelphia. Our group creates a diverse range of work which becomes unified and connected through the dual nature and concept of the siren.  A spectrum of work that portrays surreal creatures which create their own mythology and works that seduce through their compelling use of line, texture, or sensual materials.  Conversely, we create works that shout and signal in vibrant colors using bold graphic imagery or works that alert and call attention to inequity and prejudice. But perhaps the image of a siren as a powerful woman speaks to our work the most, as we explore the nature of femininity, feminism, and the female form.
