Rocky River, OH, June 06, 2008 --(PR.com
)-- Artistiques is proud to welcome artist Miguel Mendez to the Cleveland area.
Found in only one square kilometer of the world, the only source of Larimar is a remote mountainous region of the Dominican Republic. Because of its rarity, few people have ever seen Larimar, and it is only recently that the Caribbean yielded its secret to us.
Although suspected to be around a thousand years before Columbus arrived in the new world; it’s not until 1974 when the gemstone was given its name by local artist Miguel Mendez. He called the stone Larimar, naming it after his beautiful daughter LARissa and MAR, the Spanish word for sea, which it resembles so closely.
“This is your one in a lifetime opportunity to be part of history” says Lisette Bryson fellow Dominican and owner of Artistiques salon. Please join them in honoring Miguel’s legacy to the world.
An exclusive exhibit of Larimar’s pieces will be available for sale at Artistiques on Thursday, June 19 and Saturday, June 21 from 5-8pm. Miguel Mendez will answer questions to those in attendance. Sales proceeds will benefit Laura’s Home.
