Last year one of my jewellery dreams came true when Lauren Simeoni and I showed our exhibition Unnatural Tendencies at Fingers Gallery in Auckland.
I had admired Fingers from afar since my student days at Sydney College of the Arts where the Fingers Gallery poster (seen below) was prominently displayed. Every single day I would stop and look at this poster and get lost in it... admiring the visual feast of amazing work by the gallery artists. This poster had such a massive impact and influence on me in my journey as a maker and so to actually get to visit Fingers for the first time in 2009 was a hugely big deal and THEN to be able to show my work there with Lauren in 2011 was just such an amazing and unforgettable experience.
I am so delighted to have been asked to be a part of the Fingers Group Show this year - another major 'moment' for me is being shown as a part of this incredible group of makers represented by Fingers. Thank you Fingers, for making my jewelling dreams come true.
Here are some of the works I made for the Fingers Group Show 2012. You can view the catalogue for the entire exhibition here.
