Ben Lignel called me young..!

OK, so strictly speaking, he perhaps did not call me “young”, though possibly “younger”;

“Younger writers—or writers who only recently started writing on jewelry—would include”

This Is Where I Am.

I’m young or I’m recent – either way, thanks Ben 😉

UNEXPECTED explores the strange and sometimes discordant elements that make the viewing, wearing, and making of Contemporary Jewellery an enjoyable endeavor.

The unexpected and Contemporary Art Jewellery are by no means strange bedfellows- viewers and wearers of Contemporary Jewellery often seek out our discipline because it is unusual and extra-ordinary. The unusual, and unusual elements and materials, have become de rigueur in a creative world that continues to embrace post-disciplinary art practices which move beyond medium centered approaches to making.

See you there!
