Jewelry Designer Norma Wellington to Aid Performing Art School at bergenPAC’s Scholarship Program
Norma Wellington, acclaimed jewelry designer, presents her Fine Jewelry Holiday Show and Sale to benefit the Scholarship Program for the Performing Arts School at bergenPAC on Friday, Dec. 7 from noon to 10 p.m. in the theater’s Drapkin Cabaret and Lounge. Don’t buy any jewelry until you check out this magnificent collection.
The public is invited to join Ms. Wellington for a reception where live models will wear the beautiful, one-of-a-kind pieces. There will be designs of timeless beauty, as well as those created especially to blend with the most popular colors of this winter’s fashion season. Wellington’s jewelry is made of white and yellow gold, sterling silver and platinum. Many of the pieces contain diamonds, precious and semi-precious stones and pearls. The designs are in a variety of price ranges. They are extremely reasonable because the purchases are made directly from the designer.
Norma fully understands the impact that the arts can have on a child.
“When I was a high school student I was extremely shy,” she says. “Belonging to a little theater group helped me with my self-esteem and confidence. I want to give that opportunity to the youngsters who can’t afford to take classes at the Performing Arts School at bergenPAC. I know how important this can be for their future and it is my passion to be a part of this effort to change lives. I hope there will be many buyers at the show who will share in the excitement of purchasing something unique and beautiful while helping a child’s future at the same time.”
Known for being ahead of the fashion trends, Norma’s extraordinary designs have often appeared in fashion and trade magazines. Jewelers of America recently featured her creations. In one of those displays they asserted that they, “only showcase the crème de la crème in jewelry design.”
Norma Wellington has created pieces that are owned by many famous people including Hillary Clinton, the President of the Philippines, movie stars and captains of industry. One of her pieces resides in the permanent collection of the Smithsonian Institute. She designed thirteen years of consecutive collections for Sacks Fifth Avenue with her name on them. Her expertise is to take people’s unworn jewelry and create a new design to make it beautiful.
The reception coincides with a Kenny G performance in the theater at 8 p.m.
