2010 so far...

Well i've hit the ground running in 2010 with new stock going out to GAFFA in Sydney this week, fresh drop offs in the works for my Melbourne stockists and plenty of exciting projects in the pipe line.

Figment is an upcoming show at Eg.Etal running in conjunction with L'Oreal Fashion week in March. A small group of hand picked emerging and established jewellers has been asked to respond to a brief exploring mythology, imagined stories. More info to come, stay tuned, it promises to be a very exciting project.

Karla and I have been offered a spot in the Craft Victoria exhibition calendar later this year, as well as having been invited to produce exclusive work for the new upcoming Pieces of Eight gallery opening in the CBD.

I was also lucky to be awarded an Australian Arts Council ArtStart Grant late last year. Aimed at recent creative arts graduates, this new grant initiative assists successful applicants in developing their arts practice into a professional practice.

I will also be participating again this year in Penthouse Mouse, also in conjunction with Fashion week. More news to come.

So, busy busy busy!
