GRILL & CHILL, JEWELRY DESIGN SHOW
The Studio47West International Charm Jewelry Design Show and Exhibition has been added to the already packed 2009 Grill and Chill festival on Thursday, July 16, at Penn State Brandywine. The exhibition and sale, which runs from 4 to 9 p.m. in the Tomezsko Building Lounge, features the one-of-a-kind, hand-crafted jewelry of Penn State Schreyer Honors scholar Lindley Jones. Both events are free and open to the public.
The campus’ annual Grill and Chill, held annually for prospective and current students and their families, will include a barbeque, a chance to “build-a-lion,” live music from the innovative Indie rock duo Sirsy, information on Penn State, campus life, and financial aid to name a few, beginning at 5:30 p.m. on the campus lawn. An outdoor screening of the wildly popular movie “Paul Blart Mall Cop” begins at dusk. Grill and Chill is free and sponsored by the Student Affairs Office.
International Charm showcases an exceptional collection of unique jewelry inspired by Jones’ Schreyer Honors thesis studies and recent travels to Spain, Morocco, and Portugal. Also featured are the latest Studio47West collections influenced by the European Renaissance and Ancient Mesopotamia and Mesoamerican cultures.

A senior business major, Jones was the first recipient of the inaugural Undergraduate Student Research Award and Scholarship last spring. She was honored for “completing serious, high-quality research requiring critical thinking, analysis, and creativity.”
