Renowned Jewelry Expert Presents "Immortal Garden" Program at Andover Garden Club Membership Meeting
Gloria Lieberman will trace the floral motifs used in jewelry design, spanning all periods and highlighting prominent retailers' designs. A world-renowned expert on antique jewelry, Lieberman founded Skinner's Fine Jewelry Department in 1980 and served as its director for 31 years.
Many Andover residents will know her from television appearances (the BBC's The Great Antiques Hunt, the PBS series The Antiques Roadshow, and the Boston-based series Chronicle) and from her comments in such publications as The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, The Boston Globe, Yankee Magazine, and Maine Antique Digest.
A frequent lecturer, Lieberman has participated in many educational seminars, including the University of Maine's Antique Jewelry Seminar and New York University's Jewelry Appraisers Conference in Tucson, Arizona; she has been invited to speak on behalf of the Society of Jewelry Historians at the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York City. Lieberman is a teacher and lecturer at Rhode Island School of Design's (RISD) Decorative Arts program.

More About South Church in Andover
Founded in 1711 when the Andover congregational church split into north and south parishes, the South Church now serves as the church for roughly 700 area residents to practice under the denomination of the United Church of Christ. The church runs a church school program for roughly 300 local youths and also engages in domestic and international mission trips. The church welcomes all individuals raised under various faiths. According to its website, the view of the steeple at the South Church inspired South Church seminarian Samuel F. Smith, who wrote "My Country Tis of Thee," in writing one specific line in the song; "I love thy rocks and rills, thy wooded and templed hills."
