The Treasure exhibition finished yesterday, and I'm still buzzing a little now that it's over.
In the build up to the show there were never enough hours in the day. I'm sure people didn't believe me when I said I had no time to do anything other than visit Hatton Garden several times a week( to pick up castings, go home, clean them up, deliver them to the platers, go home again, collect them, take them to the assay office etc. etc. )
An endless round of chores that I could so easily… Continue

I'm currently on the lookout for Perth/WA trained jewellery people who are no longer in WA.
For next years JMGA conference I'm hoping to put together a show of works from ex-WA residents (specifically of people who did some form of jewellery/art training in WA). At this early stage I have called the show Re:turn, as a play on the Re:source theme of the conference, and because it is going to be showing off what ex-WA jewellers (many of whom will return to Perth for the conference),… Continue

It's been a wonderful week for jewellery in Melbourne, particularly with the Schmuck and Johannes Kuhnen exhibitions at RMIT Gallery.
The panel discussion that followed in Friday was very interesting. This was despite the question 'What is contemporary jewellery?' which seemed to puzzle most of the speakers.
Memo to self: when setting a panel topic, remember to discuss this with the speakers.
I thought the statements by speakers were surprisingly forthright.… Continue

8th - 14th June London will be buzzing with Jewellery Week.. Sponsored by Coutts and with exhibitions and events taking place all across the capital, there really will be something for everyone.
What really floats my boat at the moment is the fact that myself and some very talented colleagues have formed a collective, and will be exhibiting for the first time at TREASURE as the 'LONDON JEWELLERY COLLECTIVE.'
Treasure will take place in Covent Garden, and, as part of our launch… Continue

This month we have a sellection of new necklaces by Frances Stacl. In this series Stachl continues her fascination with process. The physical act of repetition and the visual build-up of elements allow Stachl to indulge what she calls her 'obsessive tendencies'.

"My work is very much about play and movement. The changeable silicone forms I create seem to be irresistible to observers who are compelled to reach out and touch, to interact with the object, thereby interacting with the wearer and breaking down traditional social boundaries between strangers. I am very interested in jewellery's ability to grab attention and communicate information about the wearer, particularly the ability to communicate… Continue

The other girl that's exhibiting with me is Asuka Matsukawa, a metalsmith from Kanazawa. She specialises in Japanese alloys and produces beautiful work.
If all goes to plan then I'll rendezvous with Sean O and Ro in central Tokyo before heading home on the overnight bus back to… Continue
