Evolution Ate My Tee




I am so over-the-moon! My ring series 'Evolution Ate My Tee' is going to be included in a curated exhibition of contemporary work within the wider event of the New Zealand Jewellery Show - the exhibition is curated by Peter Deckers and is called 'Handstand - Unfamiliar & Innovative Contemporary Jewellery'. Finally I have something to put on my art cv!

This happens 16 to 19th July 2009 at the Sky City Convention Center in Auckland, New Zealand.

This ring is a Triffid - and is made from merino wool roving, sterling silver wire, natural freshwater pearls, ruby, rough natural diamond, Thai Karen Hill Tribes fine silver & vermeil beads (Fair Trade), reclaimed watch parts, stainless steel screws, plexiglass, acrylic, UV resin, oil paint, Faux bone, lemon quartz faceted briolettes, yellow plastic golf tee and air plant.

The other rings in this series are my Anemone ring and Crinoid ring (see previous blogs). I forgot to take a photo of the other ring in the series before I posted them off.....
