Mountain Heart, Jewelry by Vicki Waite Broussard

The Southern Miss Gulf Coast Library on the Gulf Park campus presents “Mountain Heart, Jewelry by Vicki Waite Broussard.” The exhibit is on display on the second floor of the library through December and may be viewed during regular library hours. The public is invited to an artist reception on Wednesday, November 20, from 4 to 6 p.m.

Broussard is a self-taught jewelry designer who has taught several classes on jewelry making. She hand selects every bead, freshwater pearl, and precious stone that ends up in her jewelry to appreciate the unique aspects of each material selected.

Originally from a small town in the mountains of Maryland, Broussard recalls the mountains as inspiration for her art. She settled on the Gulf Coast with her family after traveling the country and has over twenty years of creating pieces of art using precious stones.

All pieces in the exhibit are available for purchase.
