'Re play' Collections - Just in case you missed our recent cabinet show!
These jewels available online until Saturday 27th October -
‘Re play’ – The collections below are the outcome of a recent Sydney Craft Week project all about enjoying the process of crafting and playing in the jewellery studio.
Melanie Ihnen - I’ve always been inspired by the outcomes achieved in my practice when I allow myself the freedom and time to play. Time without overthinking and having specific outcomes.
I especially enjoy making one-off pieces. Creating and working with the shapes and forms of the materials on hand, the offcuts and components discarded from previous ideas and projects. The opportunity to minimise the need to purchase new materials and to recycle and reuse what I already have. Crafting for the sake of crafting.
Jennifer Fahey – Like many craftspeople, I have an eclectic range of objects that I imagine could become jewellery. The theme of Sydney Craft Week ‘play’ provides the perfect opportunity to rediscover these items. I am inspired by the thought of having fun with them and seeing what eventuates.
