Art History

Virginia V. Blakeney (America, 18781963), a lifelong resident of Dayton, Ohio, is known to have produced jewelry designs for large American jewelry houses as well as for important Dayton families. Her graceful and elegant adornments included necklaces, pendants, brooches, and rings of silver or gold, often enameled or enhanced with precious stones and pearls. Blakeneys preliminary jewelry designs in this album, done in graphite with watercolor and gouache, clearly display the Arts & Crafts aesthetic and are themselves works of art.
