New in her role as an intern, Julie Tew is not new to the Museum. A senior at WSU, Julie has been a volunteer in the exhibits department and has worked at the front desk for nine months. Julie said she chose the topic of jewelry because it is "something that we put on every day, but do not stop and realize the historical or cultural importance of." She also said that she is "mostly proud that [she is] able to display artifacts that may have been overshadowed by larger items within their original exhibits."
Julie hopes to provide some background for why jewelry is important and enlighten people to its historical significance that they may not have realized or learned before.

At 5:30 p.m., the ribbon cutting will commence. Nathan Regan, Co-General Manager and Jewelry Designer at Burnell's Fine Jewelry and Design, will be on hand to provide expert insight into the jewelry pieces. Guests will get up close to some of the collection pieces and even handle select artifacts (with gloves and supervision, of course).
