A few pics from my exhibition Unnatural Selection, which closes this Sunday 19th, out in Sumner at the L'Estrange Gallery. A selection of works will remain in the Gallery's permanent L'Estrange collection, alongside works from Tony Cribb, Bryan L'Estrange himself, and a whole heap of other talented local artists.

Craft 2.0 Wellington – Photo Montage!

Despite the early morning on Saturday, I had a great time up in Welly at Craft 2.0, promoting felt. Myself, Lucy, Millie (pink paper pinafore) and Jan (wrycan) headed up from Christchurch to represent. There were some gorgeous creations, and I'm looking forward to heading up for the next one now in March 09 (and wondering how on earth I'm going to fit all my goodies into one suitcase?!..)

Craft 2.0 Wellington – Sat 11th Oct

Early tomorrow morning, in true jet-setting fashion, I'll be heading up to Craft 2.0 in Wellington with Lucy, to help out on the felt stall.. I think several coffees for breakfast should do the trick!

Jan from W
yrcan has kindly let me have a little space on her stall, so the last few days I've been making a display box for my brooches. I bought a gift box from Whittcouls for $8, and after a few hours with a scalpel and some card scraps, had myself a nice compact little display, that should sit well with Jan's gorgeous hand bound Japanese style books.

Cherry Blossom collaboration

I'm working on some new Japanese inspired jewellery designs over the weekend, and am looking forward to hunting through the collection of resource books that I've borrowed from the lovely owners of Cherry Blossom in Christchurch, Katherine and Emily, for inspiration. There's some gorgeous old photographs to work with too, and I have a stack of recycled wood off-cuts all ready to go under the laser! Keep an eye out for these in Cherry Blossom and Vault at Christmas.

Unnatural Selections

A few works from Unnatural Selection, on display now out at L'Estrange Gallery in Sumner until October 19th. So for all those who haven't been out yet, there's still time!
