- I have been invited to join Quoil Contemporary Jewellery Gallery at 149 Willis Street, Wellington. You can see some of my work in their latest group show Attachment, a show case of brooches from the jewellers of Quoil. On until July 1st.
- Also at Quoil their Matariki exhibit will open soon which celebrates the Maori New Year and all things that celebrate new beginnings and our connection to the land.
- Wunderrūma– the largest exhibition of New Zealand contemporary jewellery to travel Europe, curated by renowned jewellers Karl Fritsch and Warwick Freeman, began touring New Zealand with The Dowse Art Gallery & Museum in 2014, and this year Auckland Art Gallery Toi o Tāmaki plays host from July 18th. See if you can spot my cheeky number in the mix. The opening of Wunderrūma is cause for celebration among the contemporary jewellery community and it’s fans alike which will see a variety of pop up galleries and exhibitions of contemporary jewellery on show around Auckland City during the weekend and week following the opening on the 18th, which has been dubbed ‘WunderWeek’. If you are about Auckland city, then check out the talent on display. Updates will be posted on the WunderWeek website here. And also The Jewellers Guild of Sandrinham’s website may provide some more info and has links to some great reading with their publication ‘Overview’.

This showcase we have called PARALLEL PARKING will be our debut outing as a group and a warm up for our participation later in the year at Radiant Pavilion Contemporary Jewellery & Object Trail in Melbourne.
