Hello and Happy New Year!
Two Thousand and Twelve has arrived and it has brought all sorts of exciting changes with it. After two of the most amazing years at gaffa, the time has come for me to grip life by the shoulders and give it a damn good shake. You should know that it’s not you, it’s me, and I can’t thank you enough for all the support you have shown me over the last few years in my roll as Retail Manager at gaffa. I really have had the most incredible journey and met and worked with some of the most wonderful and inspiring people. But it is time for my adventures to take a different road, time for some silly escapades and time to conduct some ‘Zoe Brand’ focus groups. This is not "goodbye", rather a chance to get to know me in a different capacity outside of the loving gaffa community.
My last day at gaffa will be Friday the 27th of January, please join us for opening night and farewell drinks from 6-8pm at gaffa (281 Clarence St, Sydney, NSW)
What’s next for me?I will be working a few days a week at the amazing Studio 20.17 (http://studio2017.com.au/), as well one day a week volunteering at the Powerhouse Museum, I will also be pimping out (aka social coordinating) the JMGA (Jewellers and Metalsmiths Association of Australia - NSW). I'm excited about making some jewellery, writing some words and traveling to far away places. If you want to talk over beers about possible collaborations, projects, exhibitions, or the state of the Australian cricket team please feel free to drop me a line. I would love to hear from you.
Thanks again for all your support, it is going to be incredibly sad to leave my home at gaffa, but I am also excited for my next grand adventure.
All the best,
