Caroline Griffin & Sarah Walker-Holt: R.A.W Reactions after Wunderrruma

Caroline Griffin, Pendants, 2015
Caroline Griffin:The process of marking out sheet metal includes painting the metal white and tracing the pattern on using carbon paper before cutting. I've always liked this process as it reminds me of blueprint plans. These simple interim processes are interesting by offering potential but complete in their own right. The pendants are a continuation of this and examine cut gemstones.
Sarah Walker-Holt: Pin-a-phore, Brooch 2015
Sarah Walker-Holt: Each brooch from the Pin-a-phore series is the presentation of an object that it does not literally denote, suggesting a disparate comparison between its new form and former function. By using one object to represent another, whose relationship is completely incomparable, they become apparatus that communicate silent, non-verbal signs of alteration.

Overview: Sarah Walker-Holt, Shook into Being: Reflection of a mentor-mentee experience

Sarah recently wrote an article for the Jewellers Guild of Greater Sandringham. It is a brief reflection and summary of the first 12 months of her 2 year experience as a mentee to renowned jeweler Helen Britton. Being half way through the Handshake 2 project there is still a lot more to come, starting with a masterclass with writer/artist Ben Lignel at the beginning of February and exhibitions through the year at Sydney's Stanley Street Gallery, Avid in Wellington and Pah Homestead in Auckland. 

The Jewellers Guild of Greater Sandringham are a collective of fantastic inspirational jewellers/writers that go that extra mile to keep the wider jewellery community informed of everything that is currently happening in NZ with their online newsletter 'Overview'. You will find the rest of the #20 newsletter here; 

You can also follow all of the 13 Handshake 2 mentee's individual progress through the project as well as their exhibitions and activities here at
