My pieces for RMIT Auction 2014

14 07 2014

So the decision has been made.

This year I’ve donated two pairs of earrings to the RMIT Object-based Practice Gold & Silversmithing 2014 Auction:

I like the back of them too.

In fact, a friend I made a bespoke pair for re-bent the ear wires to wear them ‘backwards’ – which in fact looks even more excellent.

Only a quick post this time … I’m happy to have received a ‘in situ’ photograph of my earrings in the ‘For the Love of Coffee‘ exhibition at Studio 20/17.

‘For the Love of Coffee’ opens this week

2 10 2012

It’s a pretty busy few months for jewellery makers and jewellery lovers. This week ‘For the Love of Coffee‘ opens at Studio 20/17.

I have contributed a group of five earrings. I’ve shared a few sneak peeks, but now a proper photograph.

The colours and proportions of the weaves represent the common kinds of ways coffee is enjoyed.
From left to right: ‘Cappuccino’, ‘Cafe Latte’, ‘Flat White’, ‘Long Black’ and ‘Espresso’.
The discs are approximately 22mm in diameter.

I enjoyed making these so much.

Come to think of it, I think this is the first time I’ve made an earring collection. In fact, I have rarely made earrings before. Whoo! A milestone indeed.

For the Love of Coffee‘ is at Studio 20/17 from 2nd to 13th October 2012.

Another little look at a group of earrings I’ve made for an upcoming exhibition.

This is a view of the back of the pair called ‘Capuccino‘.
