Aotearoa/Aroha Exhibition continued….

I am thrilled to say Aotearoa/Aroha was a resounding success : – )

Many thanks to the wonderful people from all over the world who visited my exhibition at the Arts Centre in Christchurch recently. I loved meeting you all and it was fantastic so many of you ended up taking a special piece of jewellery as a memento from New Zealand home with you : – )

I got a spare minute to take some more images of the exhibition today.

The domes I have used for some of the jewellery display reflect upside down images of the photographs I have blown up and displayed on the back wall of the gallery! The reflection is such a happy surprise and looks awesome so I had to capture a shot of it!

The venue – Cloisters Gallery is in the North Quad of the historic Arts Centre here in Christchurch and I love the way such an old but incredibly beautiful building can showcase contemporary jewellery in such a wonderful way. The next two images are called Old/New
