Photo detail

Light running wild through the circle of mirrors, bits of glass and other items create their own patterns of color and joy as one looks into the depth of a kaleidoscope. Nellie Bly is a gallery of kaleidoscopes and art glass in Jerome which features collectors’ kaleidoscopes and art glass, a large selection of children’s scopes, fun visuals and games to dazzle the mind.

Jerome - History's Refractions

Ghost town turned artist colony offers kaleidoscope of experiences

Standing in a funky little kaleidoscope shop perched on a near vertical hilltop in Jerome, it came to me: Jerome is a lot like a kaleidoscope. Holding the optical toy to my eye, the broken fragments of glass swirled and morphed until coming to rest in a beautiful display of patterns. Somehow everything in that tube came together to form a picture, just like the town, which offers its own delightfully skewered view.
