1964, Helen W. Drutt English's jewelry box contained the following: a gold- plated circle pin from her high school days, her grandmother's cameo brooch, and a replica from the shop at the University Museum of the University of Pennsylvania. Twenty-two years later, the Center City gallery owner's jewelry is on display at the Philadelphia Museum of Art. There's not a circle pin or a cameo in the lot. Her 150-plus pieces stretch the conventional definition of jewelry. There are recognizable forms - brooches, necklaces, bracelets and rings - beside radical pieces that lie in a netherland between garment, jewelry, sculpture and, occasionally, instrument of torture.

For Rea Rossi, sound has always been a tricky thing: elusive and slippery, wrangled only with therapy, concentration, and excellent hearing aids. So Rossi, 29, an artist based in Fishtown, began contemplating how to capture it and make it tangible, solid enough to wrap around a wrist or drape over her shoulders. The resulting artworks - visualizations meant to represent sound waves created in a computer-assisted design program and 3D-printed from nylon - are somewhere on the spectrum between jewelry and sculpture.
