I will have three pieces of jewellery from my “Drifting” series in ArtOpportunity – a multi media exhibition by Christchurch artists at the George Hotel, Park Terrace, Christchurch this weekend. The exhibition runs from 2pm – 8pm Friday 27th May with the official grand opening at 5pm and then runs until Sunday 29th May. I will be there on Saturday 28th May from 1pm – 4pm and would love to see you! It’s wonderful to have art back in the city again even if it is only for a short time – Art feeds the soul : – )

New Works on Display at ConneXion Gallery, Christchurch – August 2010

I have four lovely, new jewellery designs on display in the latest exhibition at ConneXion Gallery, upstairs in the Arts Centre of Christchurch during August. One of the pieces is a necklace made from ancient glass Afghanistani beads, interspersed with small handmade silver beads and sparkling, tiny glass beads. The gorgeous and varied colours within each bead of this necklace remind me of Papatuanuku – Earth Mother. Another piece in the exhibition – “New Beginnings pendant” was inspired by a perfect leaf I found beneath a tree on one of my walks recently. I achieved the beautiful, iridescent colours on the sterling silver and raising gilding metal with extreme heat. The four evocative pieces in the exhibition, reminiscent of nature have all been created in natural earth tones. Made from my heart and with my hand no two pieces of jewellery can ever be exactly the same.
