JEWELLERY SHOWCASE:  JESSICA TURRELL AND MISUN WON  29 APRIL – 28 MAY

JEWELLERY SHOWCASE: JESSICA TURRELL AND MISUN WON 29 APRIL – 28 MAY

JEWELLERY SHOWCASE:
JESSICA TURRELL AND MISUN WON
29 APRIL – 28 MAY

Two curated showcases of contemporary jewellery in our shop. Part of the Select Festival presented by SIT Select

"SIT Select celebrates diversity and always presents challenging inspiring work. The jewellers that I have chosen reflect this.  Each works with widely differing materials – metal type, thread, enamel and digital technologies; each combines fine handcrafted skills and traditional metalwork techniques using silver and gold." Mary La Trobe-Bateman, Jewellery Showcase Curator

Misun Won shows an Oriental sensitivity to her designs by combining a depth of colour in red thread with the richness of fine metals.

Jessica Turrell presents a collection of finely crafted enamel jewellery to showcase at New Brewery Arts. Jessica creates work that moves away from traditional enamel practice in order to achieve a more ambiguous and expressive material quality.  Her work has a tactile delicacy whilst making pieces that reward the wearer’s close attention with an intricate and detailed surface.

Curated by Mary La Trobe-Bateman in partnership with the Select Festival.
