100+ Strangers Challenge - Charles Pinckney

Stranger #109

I visited the Art on Ruffner Mountain show recently and this man's smile just stopped me in my tracks. Meet very talented jewelry artist Charles Pinckney from Athens, Georgia.

UPDATE: Charles tells me he'll be at the Magic City Art Connection next weekend. Come on out B'ham readers and meet him in person.

Gracie said it best ... and I am thinking you should have bought those blue earrings, they'd look smashing on you

SRQ said...

You're so right! There's something quite pleasant about Charles' demeanor. Who says you need to show teeth when you smile?!

Bibi said...

Love the smile...and those blue earrings.

He looks pleased with life and himself...I wonder if he's been to our annual art show with his jewelry?

The little blue earrings are titled"Geodes". They represent something my mother told me when I was a kid. She said that you can't judge anybody in this world because you don't know what's inside anybody. Only God knows that and that's why He gets that job. So, these are about the beauty that could lie hidden inside us. Most of my works are based on memories. Thanks for honoring me with this mention. I'm honored. Charles

Charles,

Your mother was a wise lady. What a lovely story.

Thank you for allowing me to photograph you and your beautiful work. Will you be in B'ham for any other art shows??
