Mari Funaki Award for Contemporary Jewellery

These are the last days to see an interesting, beautiful collection of contemporary jewellery from international and Australian, established and emerging, artists at Gallery Funaki, Melbourne:
The Mari Funaki Award for Contemporary Jewellery exhibition.

I am over the moon and very humbled to be a part of this amazing show (insert muffled screams of happiness onto the serious text here!!!). Two of the brooches below from my Evolution-series, the larger steel piece and the brooch in the lower image, were selected to participate. They received a Judges' Commendation for emerging jeweller's work (more screams!!!). 

A heartfelt thank you to the Gallery Director Katie Scott, Award Manager Chloe Powell, and the Judges Julie Ewington, Warwick Freeman, and Simon Cottrell.

The exhibition closes on September 13. Be quick!

PS. More images with details also here on Klimt02.
