Selected jewelry pieces include a brilliant collection of rings, earrings, bracelets, pendants and fossilized carvings, which will be featured at tonight's reception and tomorrow morning's Trunk Show from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
At tonight's reception, Studio Seven will offer a selection of Tri-Valley wines from Steven Kent, Ruby Hill and Wente. These will include fruit-filled wines and bold and complex varietals, such as Cabernet, Zinfandel and Chardonnay.
"Steven Ruse has the widest assortment of hand-fashioned rings and bracelets, some over-sized and others made of fine silver that is soft to the touch, reflecting his passion for his little masterpieces," said Studio Seven Arts owner Dirk Christiansen. "Coupling his personality with a fun selection of local wines makes for an easy escape this weekend."
A former sea diver, Ruse began fashioning his vast collection of artifacts and precious stones to create jewelry for his wife and, later, for everyone. Christiansen said Ruse's work inspires natural appeal, due to the artisan's use of fine silver and distinct metals, beautifully colored precious stones and fossilized ivory, polished and fashioned for his carvings.
