Here is a description of the show:
This year we invite a selected number of Australian and International artists to make contemporary versions of this ancient form of self expression. Expect to see works ranging from eye catching, oversized statement pieces, through to delicate pared back jewels. The only limitation will be that the finished work can be worn around the neck.

On Collaboration

While I am on a kick about the radio,
Michale Parekowhai and his sister were interviewed a few weeks ago.  I think that this is a very interesting idea of how a collaboration might work.

Photography and Jewellery

Hanna Hedman, jeweller  & Sanna Lindberg, photographer, are collaborating on show called “Still-Jewelry” opening at Silke & The Gallery.  So if you are in Antwerp......
Here is what the gallery has to say about the show:

Hanna Hedman & Sanna Lindberg

With the reference to still-life paintings and photography and its inanimate subjects. The photographs are portraits, but its main focus is not the person, but the jewelry. In most of my photographs the people are in many ways life-less with surreal elements.
I am interested in showing my art in diverse ways not just inside the glass-box. Installations, exhibitions, through wearing and through photographs.
