“Deep Slip” by Melissa Cameron

 

“I am a research jeweler.

The evidence of my investigations – the jewelry I produce – speaks to my interest in architecture, geometry, social justice, and the human body. Through my work I attempt to manifest my belief in the interdependence of all matter, and the sacredness of human life…”

“Resist” earrings by Melissa Cameron

“This show will see the debut of a new series of enamel and steel works, entitled Resist. An extension of my Body/Politic works, these pieces are individually enameled in a beautiful rainbow of blues, the color that is the opposite of orange on the traditional color wheel. 10% of the purchase price from the Resist line sold anywhere in the world will go to Islamic Relief USA, a non-profit 501(c)(3) humanitarian agency who work on international and domestic US development and relief projects.”

Bits and Bobs:

A collaborative show curated by Tegan Wallace

October 28 – November 28, 2016

Opening Reception Oct 28, 2016 6pm – 9pm

Often jewelry is created to celebrate and mark milestones in life. As part of marking her milestone of turning 40 jewelry artist Tegan Wallace invited a collection of artists to take a prototype or unfinished object from Tegan’s own work and breathe new life into them.

One of the “bits”. Or is it a “bob”?

Seventeen artists were each given a “bit and bob” that had been an object originally created by Tegan and created a new art piece either using or inspired by their given “bit”.

These Bits and Bobs will become reflections of what Tegan has achieved so far while celebrating the metal community that had given her so much and continues to influence her own artistic growth.
