For the Love of the Brooch

A few months ago I was approach by the lovely ladies from Studio 20/17 to curate a special satellite Christmas show for them. Feast, which is due to open in a little over 3 weeks (YIKES!) on the 20th Dec, has been a great experience and huge learning curve.

Invited participants include established and emerging jewellers from Australia and also a promising fresh crop of exciting and experimental works from New Zealander jewellers.

Two of these New Zealanders (Sharon Fitness & Lynsay Raine) have been keeping a close eye on my 365 project and in an inspired moment came up with a particularly nifty brooch idea.

"Here is a brooch that Sharon made today, after an exciting car, train, walk, bus, walk journey into work today. Inspired by the need to have your ticket ready for the transport people at every train stop. We thought you might like it."

Absolutely! Keep them coming!

I hope you are all enjoying this festive season, I've been cracking on with some pretty ugly christmas decorations as my material of choice, so look out soon for lots of gold and glittery brooches to come.

Cheers - Z
