PMA Contemporary Craft Show: November 2024

I am excited to announce that Original Eve Designs has been selected to participate in the 48th annual Philadelphia Museum of Art Craft Show. The show will take place from Friday, November 15th through Sunday, November 17th, 2023, with a Preview Party on Thursday, November 14th at the Pennsylvania Convention Center in Philadelphia.


About the Show:

47th Annual PMA Contemporary Craft Show

The Philadelphia Museum of Art Craft Show offers a special opportunity for the public to meet the country’s finest craft artists and to learn about and purchase their work. The show is the premier exhibition and sale of craft in the country. It will showcase the work of 195 craft artists, carefully selected from over 500 applicants in a highly competitive jury process conducted by craft experts.

The crafts exhibited embrace a striking variety of forms and functions, including: glass, baskets, jewelry, both wearable and decorative fiber, metal, paper, leather, furniture, ceramic, wood, and mixed media.

The Philadelphia Museum of Art Craft Show is presented annually by The Philadelphia

Museum of Art Women’s Committee for the benefit of the Philadelphia Museum of Art.

The event attracts 10,000 visitors to the Pennsylvania Convention Center in Philadelphia over a

period of three days. Funds raised are used to purchase works of art and craft for the

permanent collections, to support education programs, and to contribute to conservation and

publication projects.

Original Eve at the PMA Show:

I am thrilled and grateful to have been accepted into this highly coveted exhibition! PMA is my favorite show and I am so excited to be participating for the third time. Each PMA show so far has taken place a few weeks after something major in my life has occurred. My first PMA was a few weeks after my wedding and my second PMA was only a few weeks after the birth of our little guy, Caden!

I wonder what PMA 2024 will mark?

This year, I will be presenting an assortment of fine jewelry using one-of-a-kind gemstones that I have hand-selected from the world's premiere gemstone suppliers. The pieces will range in price from $900-$20,000 and include casual every day fine jewelry, as well as extraordinary pieces perfect for special events and milestones.

I am currently working on new collections and new pieces to add to my existing collections. That's right! I am developing whole new bodies of work! My new pieces include several gemmy studs, drop earrings that hug close to the earlobe, and cufflinks.

I look forward to seeing you at the show where you can see my new work in person!
