As some followers may know I have been making jewelley since December last year (2011) after having an accident – for a while I couldn’t make the larger scale sculpture I usually produce within my art practice. Jewellery was a managable option: I could still be creative – it was like making mini wearable sculptures.
While I have exhibited my sculpture both within Australia and overseas, the only exposure I have given my jewellery was amongst friends, via social media and on my Etsy shop. I have not formally exhibited the jewellery pieces – until now!
I have several jewellery pieces in an exhibition called Artwear at Brunswick Street Gallery in Fitzroy which opens this Friday at 6pm. This is the first time my jewellery creations will be shown in a gallery setting. It will be very interesting – and nerve racking – to observe the reactions! The exhibition features several artists exhibiting a range of wearable art.
The exhibition runs till 4th October, so if you happen to find yourself having a browse and a glass of wine in Brunswick Street make sure you drop in for a look 🙂
