RMIT Gold & Silversmithing Jewellery Auction 2010

Lately, the life of our class has been virtually nothing but organising, organising and organising. It is because this year, it's our turn as 3rd years, to organise the traditional jewellery auction which will fundraise for our end-of-year exhibition and catalogue. Amazing how quickly the time has gone from first year to here, almost leaving … it's great, with all we've learned and the jewellery moments along the way, but a little scary at the same time. And now, only a few days to go to the first big event of our (quickly vanishing) year.

Here are the important details of what, where and when. You can also see images of work for sale at our blogsite, link below. The site is still continuously updated, so mark it in your browser and keep checking back.

RMIT Gold and Silversmithing Annual Jewellery Auction 2010

Hope to see you there!

RMIT Gold and Silversmithing Annual Jewellery Auction 2010:
Snap up the work of contemporary jewellers and silversmiths!

The RMIT Gold and Silversmithing auction is just around the corner – only four days to go! An annual landmark within the jewellery community, collectors and the public, this event is a great opportunity to spot emerging jewellers and silversmiths, and to purchase original handmade pieces by established and up-and-coming artists.

The work will be auctioned by the legendary jewellery expert Mr Ronnie Bauer of Klepner’s Fine Antique Jewellers, assisted by our own Alysha Batliwalla. A fundraising tradition, all proceeds go towards the end-of-year graduate exhibition and catalogue which highlight the exceptional talent this course nurtures and develops.

Come along, have a wonderful night and show your support by bidding on some outstanding jewellery pieces!

Wednesday 11 August
Previewing of work from 6.00 pm
Auction begins 7.00 pm
