2nd December: Studio 20/17 (Sydney), ‘Little Big‘ [link]; “The scale of things is always relative. It just depends upon your perspective. Studio 20/17’s closing exhibition for 2014 is about the way we perceive our world, our own problems, concerns, loves and passions. Something big to us might just be very tiny to the next person. This exhibition is about turning our perspective on its head, questioning the importance, weighting and priority we give to things. The Little|Big challenge was issued to a cohort of artists who are accustomed to working with the delicate, the tiny and the refined. It’s time to upend the cup, throw away jewellery convention and see what emerges. It’s time to make something little and it’s time to make something big.“; until 31st January 2015

6th December: MPavillion Walk Meet with Roseanne Bartley, 10-11am [link]; “Her ‘My Shadow Wears’ is a public performance project that creates jewellery through the chance meeting of found objects—rubbish, fallen leaves, lost trinkets—and the shadows cast by bodies as we loom over our discoveries, incorporating them into our silhouettes. The results are jewellery ‘experiences’, rather than finished or formal accessories. In walking together we also share in, swap and wear one another’s jewellery finds.

7th December: Craft ‘NEW CRAFT @ Queen Victoria Market‘ event [link]; “A one of its kind event, NEW CRAFT showcases a considered selection of handmade objects, presented to you by the people who made them – a truly special experience and a precious opportunity to learn about the skills and processes involved in making each object!

12th December: Jam Factory (Adelaide), Alice Potter ‘Colour: Speaking in Plumes‘ [link, page]; “a collection of new jewellery pieces centred around the colour combinations different species of birds display in their feathers. Having researched many species of colourful birds, as well as having photographed hundreds of taxidermied specimens at the South Australian Museum Science Centre’s Ornithology collection, Potter whittled her collection down to around 70 species to focus the exhibition on. Each of these pieces embodies a specific species of bird, taking the colours from their feathers and reinterpreting these within the jewellery works.“; until 24th January 2015
