I Two Philosophies Lie Behind Local Jewelry --photo by EJck. O NAMES REFLECTING THE "ROMAANCE" of precious stones are applied to her creations by Ruth Mitchell, jewelry designer and craftsman. Shown here, left to right, are the necklaces she calls "Joyous Heart", "Persian Prince" and "Early Spring", Billy Mitchell Kin Designs Gem Clusters By. RICHARD C. OLSON A restive nature -and the desire to do something for her -former colleagues, the Chetnlks of Yugoslavia, has led Ruth Mitchell, sister of the late Billy Mitchell,, famed air pioneer, into a new business.. Miss Mitchell, who now.makes her; home near, Amado south, of Tucson, has prepared a line of-expensive jewelry which she has'de- signed and executed herself. ' The line will go on display and sale at .Tucson's new Golden Shell shop Nov.-15. . - . - . - · " Behind the Jewelry'.work-she is, doing lie at least two philosophies. One is.that a person : should continue to work -for'-the things-ini which"'he 'believes/ regardless of the temptations -of leisure- and- the discouragement-of defeat. The other, less important but .firmly,: held, is that the ' precious minerals., of the earth have "a "vitality"' riot found .in any plastic creation. ' ' " ; - . ' First Philosophy It Is the.'-first .philosophy /which provides 'Miss' Mitchell 'with her motivation./ During the. last, war she "fought; as a guerrilla /leader. with.the Chetnlks of Draja Mlhailo- vich in'. Yugoslavia. Captured ;by the GermanS, she .spent .14 .months -in 11; different' prisons, '/At 1 , last she '.'was .released . In' an ; International .exchange''of prisoners after being'condemned to death. - ·Miss Mitchell believes the situation in' the 'Balkans'. is "worse- now than it was under the Germans- and retains an intense loyalty for her leader, Mihailovich,, and her RUTH MITCHELL Israel Cabinet Re-Formed former colleaguss, the Chetniks. She has started her-new enterprise to help raise funfls them who still are for those of In displaced person camps because they don't want return to Tito's Yugoslavia; . The second philosophy' Miss Mitchell- has acquired In the course of her world travels through the years. She has always had. an intense Interest in gems, .she says,, and ·· wherever · she traveled- she fo - -!nd herself Inquiring about them. The result is a considerable knowledge about the strange and devious ways through which the precious gems of the world are obtained and eventually routed to market Uses Many Kinds Add those two philosophies to several ounces of determination and skill, and you have the Ruth Mitchell j»welry line. . ,V Miss,Mitchell uses nothing:*ut real gems in the things she makes. Sometime! she uses as/many as. I 1 ? different kinds In a single piece, as in the case or-the-$1,000 necklace she calls the "Ghengis. Khan." In. other items she may. use only two or three types of stone. Her entire - line .is a departure from the' type of jewalry - being worn- commonly today. It is a return-to' the days before plastics and costume jewelry. · "Jewelry today has become stultified," -Miss Mitchell says. She feels -an item of jewelry should be expressive' of something ' and possess-a beauty of Its own. "With.'a single piece of such Jewelry," she says, "a woman -can be dressed up in just a simple dress." Work Is Slow Many hours go into the production of each .piece,. Miss Mitchell makes. Often, she says, she will assemble a necklace, not like it, take it. apart -and remake, it sev-, eral times. . "It's painstaking work,"'she says: Til tell, you, there won't be any competition in this business." Most of the stones which go 1 Into her jewelry -are, of course, new,' but Miss Mitchell also has a collection of old jewelry from which she gleans Items' .no longer available, One such Item is the crystal drop, which 'she used in making: the necklace she calls "Persian Prince." Other names, she has applied^ to her jewelry include ."Joyous Heart," "First. Love" and "Early Spring." The itames are a reflection of the "romantic feeling" Miss Mitchell has for Jewels. "Most women," she says, "do not appreciate the romance behind every tiny gem" Once you,-know the gem's history you can't help but be fascinated by It."'.... : JERUSALEM,- ; Oct..-'.SI.
