  a 3 Week Master class for practicing jewellers 

This is a workshop based around exploring the variety of pins and catches used to attach brooches to clothing.  Whether your brooch is made from metal, fabric, wood or rubber etc, be it huge or tiny, heavy or light  what will work best as an attachment for the piece, the wearer and the maker.

Ilse-Marie Erl was back in Fiji again last month for the official opening of the Nailaga Women’s Resource Center and a community event at the Sofitel Denerau where her MOP Group helped raising funds for the family of a local artist afflicted by a terminal illness. 

The members of the Mother of Pearl (MOP) Group are dedicated to improving the living standards of remote and regional villages and communities by producing original handicraft, jewellery and art items.

They use traditional materials such as voivoi (similar to flax), handmade clay beads, mangimangi (coconut fibre), masi (tapa cloth) and sustainably farmed Mother of Pearl shell together with modern materials to produce indigenous designs with a contemporary twist.

Fri. 17 April - Sun. 17 May 2015 | FREE

Fine company features a selection of six established contemporary jewellers with distinct ways of making. These current day jewel makers respond differently to the history and boundaries of jewellery to contemporise this art form. The exhibition showcases: a collection of Jane Dodd’s infamous bear paws; Octavia Cook’s eye catching and sometimes eye gouging jewels; Jasmine Watson’s intricately patterned enamel pieces; Renee Bevan’s performance based jewellery; Mia Straka’s neckpieces influenced by traditional weaving and basketry; and Joanna Campbell’s works inspired by her love of textiles and antique lace. In using both precious and non-precious materials through traditional and nontraditional means, their jewellery practices refer to ideas of craftsmanship, aesthetics and adornment.
