Funky Pretty Jewelry

It seems fitting to include in a review of Funky Pretty Jewelry some information about the paintings of Andrew Wyeth. Many of those paintings, like the pieces offered by Funky Pretty Jewelry, were made in the state of Maine. The names of many of Wyeth’s paintings, like the names of the Funky lines of jewelry, reflected their association with Maine.

Funky Pretty Jewelry has both a “Seascapes” and a “Mother of Pearl” line of jewelry. Their selection of those names indicates the extent to which their jewelry aids the recall of both the flora and fauna of the beach. In fact, the frosted glass on some of the Funky Pretty jewelry resembles the misty nature of the ocean spray.

Andrew Wyeth liked to include some of the patterns and qualities of the sea in his paintings. In 1938, Wyeth created a work that he named Shoreline. In that painting he showed the kelp, barnacles, rocks and mussels on one of Maine’s rugged coasts.
