Well I have been unfaithful to this blog.
I have been lucky enough to be involved in a mentor ship with the wonderful Judy Darragh and it is being documented here!
I have also been working on Overview, a bi-monthly NZ Contemporary Jewellery Newsletter. If you haven't seen it and would like to flick me an email.
And the 2010 BOM club is just finishing., with a lovely wrap up party... and 2011 is gearing up. Watch this space.

The box project curated by Jasmine Matus is currently showing at Masterworks. I really like the display. One person I talked to was disappointed that the work seemed to take the obvious form. ie lots of necklaces. It was hard for me to comment, being a necklace making member of the project, but I think that is sort of the point. Maybe it would have helped to see the 'box' the makers received to get a feel with how far this jewellery had come.
My whiffle golf ball necklace.
This was made almost a year ago now and looking back, being pushed outside of my comfort zone forced me to work a bit differently. It was really hard for me at first, but by the end, I was on a role and really enjoying the material. Looking back, it has really influenced some of my current making.
