Going to be in Boston for the SNAG conference this week? Come say hi! Not going to be there? Follow along with the shenanigans on Instagram or Twitter by following @thejewellist (t) or @thejewellist (i).

Don’t know/care what I’m talking about with all that #@ nonsense? Then stay with me here on the blog and I’ll wrap it up at the end of the weekend. But for those of you needing a hit beforehand, here’s the skinny on where I’m going to be…

1/ OK, first up, permit me one more hashtag while I explain what I’m going to be doing on Friday:

#‎STICKITSNAG‬
Collect- from our Artist-Agents (announced soon)
Photograph- on yourself or a friend
Hashtag- #stickitsnag
Post (fb/insta/twitter)

It’s a secret no more! I’m an Artist-Agent (always wanted to be agent melissa!) for Platforma’s 2015 #‎STICKITSNAG‬ SNAG adventure. Come get yourself a sticker from me any time on Friday, put it on, snap a pic and post it – oh and hashtag yourself and the gorgeous work/non-work. And might I add, one of those images is actually a work from me… It’s simultaneously the most/least effort I’ve ever put into a pin-swap 😉

2/ My video (need I remind you?!) is IN COMPETITION! I’m keen to get it played in front of a whole auditorium of my peers – am I? Well, lets say I am, and let’s say you could be a decisive figure in actioning my wish.

I know, actioning?

3/ Trunk Show!!

The Sieve Pattern of 2010, lasercut in Arches watercolour paper, 2015, along with a work from The Sieve series, Layered Window, 2010-2015, stainless steel.

I have amassed a beautiful collection of my Sieve series works – including some rare 2015 jewels that I recently made made from parts that I had been holding on to for a rainy day –  and today I’ve taken delivery of a limited edition set of full-sized laser-engraved prints of the Sieve pattern from my laser-cutter, all of which will be for sale at the Trunk Show this coming Saturday! The laser-engraved prints pictured are full size and in miniature, with the smaller versions to be packaged with works sold at SNAG only!

(I had a copy of this pattern pasted on my wall over my computer in Australia, under which I had written and signed “When I die I want this pattern etched onto my casket.” That’s how proud I was of this work/how much I love this pattern.)

All of these, along with some pieces from the One Design Series (yup – as shown in the video above) as well as a few earrings and pieces from the La Geometrie Series will be on display this Saturday, so if you’ve every wanted to check out an array of my all stainless and titanium works, Saturday is the day.

The Trunk Show will be held on the 23rd of May in the Plaza Ballroom with VIP entry from 3:30 pm and open to all from 4:30pm – 6:30pm. Not at the conference? No worries! Come along – we’re at the The Boston Park Plaza Hotel & Tower, 50 Park Plaza at Arlington St. Boston, MA 02116

And for those of you who are nowhere near the conference – let’s talk. Email me for a price list.
