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
