For centuries, human adornment has been used to demonstrate power, sexual attraction, life passages, relationships and protection. Adornment is an art form, created to reflect tradition, nature and craftsmanship. Various works of this ancient art will be on display in “The Art of Adornment,” an exhibit featuring jewelry from Asia and Africa, including shell beads and personal decorations such as body-piercing objects and scaring.
