‘Tinker Tailor Soldier Sailor’ was launched at Gallery Artisan last Thursday to celebrate 100 years of International Women’s Day. 100 great Australian women paired up with a jeweller to produce a brooch in response to their stories. I was paired up with Dr Dorothy Hill a geologist that worked extensively in Queensland. I really enjoyed this project as there were some lovely connections. I choose mica from Mt Isa and sapphire from Rubyvale. The simple claw setting allows the materials to speak for themselves. If you are interested in contemporary jewellery this is a must see show. ‘Tinker Tailor’ continues to 12th November and will continue on a National Tour.
