sustainable bling

Wild Island Gallery
Hobart, Tasmania
2018

Showcasing the work of Australian jewellery-makers who utilise anthropogenic debris in their work, this exhibition offered an important environmental message about human consumption and waste. It asks us as a society to question what we deem ‘valuable’ and ‘precious’ and how far we are willing to go to adorn ourselves at the expense of our natural resources.

This group exhibition included the work of Pennie Jagiello (VIC), Mel Young (NSW),  Regina Middleton (VIC) and myself, all of whom work within  the medium of ‘wearable waste’. This exhibition of contemporary jewellery was created almost entirely from ‘waste’- from marine debris, to packaging, to industrial bi-products all reimagined with the utmost skill and care.
