CONTENTS ORNAMENT MAGAZINE • VOLUME 37, NO. 1 36 NEWSPAPER FASHION Wearing Headlines Extra! Extra! Read all about it! Ashley Callahan provides the exposé on clothing made or derived from newspapers since the trend began in the nineteenth century. Meticulous reporting by Callahan follows documented examples and the waves of fascination society has had with this most contemporaneous fashion statement. 42 PAT PRUITT Prototype to Perfection Diana F. Pardue gives an insightful commentary on the evolution of Pat Pruitt, a Native American jeweler who uses stainless steel, titanium and other modern alloys as his artistic choice. Coming from a background of deep involvement with machinery, Pruitt's work is all about the endless search for precision. 48 CELIE FAGO One Twig, One Hinge, One Book at a Time Carl Little investigates the life and methodology of multi-material jewelry artist Celie Fago. Fago's work employs everything that comes to hand, from twigs to polymer and precious metal clay, to traditional metalsmithing. Her experiences in teaching tie into the larger sum of her artistic experience. 54 SUZI CLICK An Eclectic Cross Cultural Style Tamara W. Hill explores the bohemian flair assembled by clothing designer Suzi Click. This transplanted Texan takes textiles and elements from across the world and combines them into stylish ensembles that are neo-tribal; while paying aesthetic homage to their roots, the new incarnations have their own distinct interpretation. 2 ORNAMENT 37.1.2013 60 SAVANNAH COLLEGE OF ART AND DESIGN Patrick R.
