Overview
More
Small World is the gallery of National Geographic photographer Jim Richardson, also a keynote speaker, writer and social media commenter. It also is the custom workshop and retail showcase for IBISwoman Jewelry, designed with ancient, antique and contemporary materials from around the world. Jim Richardson has more than 30 magazine stories to his credit, with more on the way. For the National Geographic Society and clients worldwide, he speaks on issues such as feeding the world and lessons from rural places. He was named photographer of the year by his National Geographic photography colleagues in 2014. Jim Richardson also is known for his documentary photography, His work has been covered by ABC News Nightline and twice by CBS News Sunday Morning. He is on the road about half of the average year. His working office is in the gallery and he chats with gallery visitors whenever he can. IBISwoman Jewelry was founded in 2002 by Kathy Richardson, Jim's spouse. Now with Briana Zimmerling as co-designer, Kathy collects jewelry design materials that give each pair of earrings, bracelet or necklace a story that spans eras, technologies and traditions. The massive IBISwoman collection of metals, organics, stones and glass is the groundwork for all the designs seen on the gallery floor. It is open for browsing and tours, as well as work bench consultations on custom designs.

Wonderful display of photos from around the world by National Geographic photographer Jim Richardson. Kathy Richardson is the Ibis Woman and her jewelry creations ate not only beautiful but have a story to tell. Fabulous works by local artist, Lee Becker, are also on display.
