We Won't Be Pigeonholed!

Flippin' A-mazing...
Who says Tustin, California is square? We only look square. Look a little closer and you'll find...
...badass at Chemers Gallery! Yeah, you read it right. Check out these new kickass frames. New hardcore frame Dzigns are created by world famous airbrush artist Dennis Mathewson with motifs of skulls, bones, gothic designs, tikis and more. Chemers Gallery is first to offer the Orange County area these sick sticks. Imagine how awesome these frames would look on airbrush paintings, gothic steampunk memorabilia, custom tattoo art or a rockstar mirror.

Know anyone who loves Hot Topic? How about Motocross or Harley bikes? Have any punk rock prom pics laying around? We can give your treasured tickets or favorite concert tee the edge it deserves with these tricked-out frames.

If sickles, blades and bones aren't your thing, there's a new line of tropical-themed and Americana frames just for you. Finished in gold, silver, bronze and black, they make a perfect statement every time.

If you've ever come into Chemers Gallery and met Karen, Cathy or Jennifer, you know we're not the types to hang out at Cook's Corner on a Sunday afternoon. We're not into extreme sports, and the body art we dig is of the jeweled, sparkly kind. But we found these extreme frames and just couldn't resist shedding our straight-laced exteriors!

We're dying to set you up with the hottest frames this side of hell!

Let Chemers Gallery entice you with tasty treats and goodies fit for a queen!

Mary-Austin Bame
Mary-Austin's bold mixed metal and gemstone jewels are attention-grabbers! Seeking limitless possibilities, she creates her scrumptious style with unique textures, patterns and contrast. Mary-Austin's talent took shape during college, where she incorporated her love of collage with new materials to create uncommon jewelry pieces.

Michelene Berkey
With a degree in Metalsmithing and Jewelry from California State Long Beach, Michelene Berkey's creativity in silver is endless. By combining semi-precious stones with patinaed metals, she produces delectable designs that are organically textural. Luminescent pearls feature in beautiful colors and shapes. Michelene will be traveling from Colorado to share her treats with us.

Joanna Craft
Local jewelry artist Joanna Craft cooks up beautiful designs with an Asian flair! Created with handmade silver elements and decorative papers and textiles encased in resin, Joanna's work is fun to wear and easy to customize. Her most recognizable jewels use kanji characters on colorful backgrounds with their English translations engraved on the reverse. Joanna's high quality of craftsmanship ensures every piece is deliciously versatile.

Amy Kekst
A resident of Ohio, Amy Kekst has been creating for over 30 years. She and her sister Audrey work together to combine unexpected elements to create dazzling displays. Working in gold, silver and semi-precious stones, her beautiful adornments change from season to season. These bold, eye-catching pieces range from classical styles to funky up to date designs. They are simply mouthwatering!

Dinna Yesachar
If it's feminine styles you're looking for, savor a few of Dinna Yesachar's polymer clay and Swarovski crystal pieces! Dinna's eye for detail is apparent in her bold yet delicate designs. She makes her intricate polymer clay patterns using the Italian millefiori technique. Dinna lives in Israel, while her daughter, Aliza, lives in southern California. Together they make up Busy Lizzie, collaborating from afar to push the boundaries with their art.

Pick Box from Jackie Jones
Jackie Jones began designing her distinctively appetizing
necklaces out of a frustration with the lack of bold jewelry on the market. Her incredible pieces take their inspiration from the semi-precious gemstones she works with. She was chosen multiple times by fashion designer Sue Wong to accompany her creations at Los Angeles Fashion Week. Jackie's dramatic flair is apparent in all she creates.

Pick Box from Ayala Bar
Tempt yourself with the spring line of Ayala Bar's intricate mosaic creations! This talented Israeli artist will be sending us a veritable banquet to delight the senses. Ayala has a richly varied background as a costume jeweler and experience in theater and interior design. She re-designs her line every six months, ensuring that every delectable piece is a limited edition.

Maria Counts
Candy-colored glazes cover Maria Counts' delightful ceramic pieces. Featuring whimsical teapots, vessels and embossed kimonos that stand on their own, Maria's creations are as good as chocolate without the guilt!

Join us on Saturday, March 20th from 1:00 to 5:00 pm
for jewelry that's delish, ceramic art to savor and sweet treats to eat!
